The Muslim World League condemns in the strongest possible terms the crime of desecrating a copy of the Holy Quran, committed by an extremist in Copenhagen, Denmark, in a repeated disgraceful act that is provocative to the feelings of Muslims.
In a statement by the MWL, the Secretary-General and Chairman of the Organization of Muslim Scholars, His Excellency Sheikh Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, denounced these absurd and heinous acts that violate all religious and human norms and principles, and collide with the values of the international community, which -recently- warned of the dangers of these acts, and clearly declared its rejection of them and all manifestations of "Islamophobia", incitement and hatred against Islam and Muslims.
The statement reiterates its warning against the dangers of practices that provoke hatred and outrage religious feelings as they only serve the agendas of extremism leading to achieve the goals of its hateful ideology, which is supported by official protection under a pretext rejected by normal moral logic, and which harm the civilized and logical concept of freedom. This extremist concept of freedom is becoming a haven for those who stir up hatred and religious and intellectual conflict.
The statement continued saying: At a time when our world hopes to work on strengthening friendship between nations and peoples, we find these criminal acts working to obstruct and hinder our progress, only to satisfy the hatred of the haters, who were -in the past- the nucleus of evil in painful struggles.
