Arab nations condemn burning of Qur’an, Turkish flag by Islamophobic extremists in Denmark

(MENAFN) Arab nations have spoken out against the burning of the Qur’an and the Turkish flag by far-right anti-Muslim group Patrioterne Gar Live in Denmark. The incident was broadcast on Facebook and sparked condemnation from the Turkish Foreign Ministry, which called it a "hate crime" and urged Danish authorities to take action against those responsible.

Arab nations have also condemned the acts, saying they provoke hatred against Muslims, especially during the holy month of Ramadan. The Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates spokesperson Sinan Majali described the act as a serious act of hate and a manifestation of Islamophobia that incites violence and insults to religions.

The statement called on Danish authorities to prevent similar actions that fuel violence and hatred and threaten peaceful coexistence. The Kuwait Foreign Ministry also warned that the burning of the Qur’an risked provoking an angry backlash from Muslims around the globe.

The incident highlights the need for greater tolerance and respect for different cultures and religions. The international community must work towards promoting peaceful coexistence and preventing hate crimes and acts of violence against any group based on their religious or cultural background.
