Arab League condemns new desecration of the Koran in Sweden

Ahmed-Aboul-Gheit
Cairo, Jul 22 (Prensa Latina) The Arab League condemned a new desecration of a copy of the Koran, a holy book for Muslims, for the third time in Sweden this year.

The organization’s general secretary, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, criticized the Swedish authorities for allowing this, saying it is an “unacceptable provocation of the sentiments of Muslims around the world.”

The officer issued a statement warning about the consequences of this type of action, saying that they only contribute to spreading the discourse of extremism.

Salwan Momika, a refugee residing in Sweden, trampled on the Koran on Thursday after receiving authorization from the police, almost a month after burning another in front of the largest mosque in Stockholm, raising a wave of repudiation in Arab countries, which threatened reprisals.

Numerous people stormed the Swedish embassy in Baghdad, and the Swedish ambassador was expelled by the Iraqi government.

Following this issue, Egypt denounced the new desecration, stating that such incidents are a “flagrant defiance that goes beyond the limits of freedom of expression.”

The Foreign Ministry of Egypt expressed its deep concern about these actions of contempt for religion, the spread of Islamophobia and the increase in incitement to hatred.
