OIC condemns burning of Holy Quran in Sweden

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation has strongly condemned provocative actions of burning copies of the Holy Qur’an during anti-Muslim demonstrations in different cities of Sweden.

In a statement Secretary General of the OIC Hissein Brahim Taha said the rallies, which were organized by the Danish Right-Wing Party Stram Kurs, further substantiated the Muslim World’s concerns of the alarming trend of Islamophobia perpetuated by extreme right supporters.

Turkey has also criticized a Swedish far-right politician for burning the Muslim Holy Quran and said such neo-Nazi movements have led to increased Islamophobia.

Urging to work and collaborate against any form of racism and anti-Islam rhetoric, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in a joint presser with his Hungarian counterpart Peter Szijjarto said attacks on mosques and the burning of the Quran do not have anything to do with freedom of expression.
