Iran's Embassy in Denmark condemns renewed insult against holy Quran

Tehran, IRNA – The Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Denmark has strongly condemned the continued hateful acts of desecration of the Holy Quran in the country.

"The Embassy is bewildered by the inaction by Danish authorities to stop the incessant propagation of hate in the form of hate and xenophobic speeches, insults to the Holy Quran, and serious impairment of normal functioning of Muslim Embassies in Copenhagen," the Embassy said in a Monday statement issued in Copenhagen. 

"The continuation of insults to the Holy Quran continues despite OIC, representing 57 Muslim countries, calling on Denmark to act swiftly to end this blatant insults to the Muslims worldwide," the statement added.

The Embassy said it has been extremely dismayed at what is becoming a routine attack on the belief of Muslims across the world while calling on the Danish Government to observe its international obligations to put an end to this circus of pretentions in the name of defending freedom of expression.

Far-right Islamophobes burned copies of the holy Quran in front of the Egyptian and Turkish embassies in Copenhagen last week, marking yet another anti-Islam act in Denmark.

It came after similar acts of insult against Islamic sanctities in neighboring Sweden, which caused an international outcry and prompted the governments of Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the UAE and Lebanon to slam the insults and downgrade their diplomatic ties with Stockholm.
