Egyptian Gov’t condemns systematic desecration of Quran

Cairo, Sep 26 (Prensa Latina) The Egyptian Government Tuesday condemned the desecration of a copy of the Quran by an extremist in the Netherlands, and warned that such repeated incidents in Europe are irresponsible.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates warned in a statement that such “shameful and unjustified incidents” would have severe consequences because they fuel hate speech.

Such actions will cause more violence, extremism, and an escalation of Islamophobia, it warned.

The Foreign Ministry considered that these provocative practices are a clear violation of the freedom of belief and religious practices and a contradiction with international conventions and human rights values.

The document called on countries to adopt the necessary measures to prevent such acts and questioned expressions of fanaticism and hatred.

Extremists in Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands have burned or smashed copies of the Muslim holy book this year.
