Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a written statement about the attack on the Qur’an.
In the statement, it was expressed that such irresponsible actions and behaviors that provoke the feelings of Muslims, incite hatred and threaten peaceful life are condemned.
In the statement, it was noted that such acts of hatred are one of the manifestations of Islamophobia, which encourages violence and insults to religions, and emphasized that the repetition of these attacks reveals that the international community should take action to counter them.
The Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs also called for the enactment of laws that would criminalize insulting symbols and values that are considered sacred, promoting the culture of peace and “accepting the other”, increasing mutual respect, and putting a stop to extremism and fanaticism.
Members of the anti-Islamic and ultra-nationalist “Danske Patrioter (Danish Patriots)” marginal group in Denmark burned the Quran in front of the Iraqi Embassy in Copenhagen on 21 July.
The members of the group, who opened an anti-Islamic banner and shouted slogans insulting Islam, threw the Iraqi flag and the Qur’an on the ground and stepped on it.
