Saudi Arabia has sharply condemned the destruction of the Holy Quran in Sweden, the Netherlands, and Denmark.
The Saudi ambassador to Pakistan, Nawaf bin Remarked Al Malki, stated, “Rather, it was the Glorious Quran which is detailed in the Loh-e-Mahfooz,” referring to a verse from the Holy Quran.
He also quoted Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman, who declared to the Al Ekhbariya television network, “The Holy Quran is our constitution, and it always has been and always will be.”
Along with Sweden and the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia is said to have strongly denounced and criticised the extremist act of burning copies of the Holy Quran in Copenhagen, Denmark’s capital.
The Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs warned in a statement that the new provocative conduct was hurting the sensibilities of millions of Muslims worldwide. The ministry underlined Saudi Arabia‘s position, which has strongly condemned all of the heinous acts committed in recent weeks in numerous European cities under the pretence of free expression and with no indication of how to put an end to them.
It emphasised the Kingdom’s demand that all European nations where these heinous atrocities happened take prompt steps to prevent any further incitement of religious intolerance and strife.
