The Muslim World League condemns, in the strongest terms, the crime of burning a copy of the Holy Quran in Stockholm, Sweden. The scenes of this disgraceful act provoke Muslims’ sentiments. Especially, on the blessed Eid Al-Adha.
In a statement by the Secretariat-General of the Muslim World League, His Excellency Sheikh Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, the Secretary-General of the Muslim World League, the Chairman of the Organization of Muslim Scholars, denounced this absurd and heinous crime, carried out under the protection of the police and under the claim of practicing freedom of expression, while in reality, it abuses, among many things, the true concept of freedom; which calls for respecting and not provoking others under any pretext. Dr. Al-Issa warned against the dangers of these practices that promote hatred, provoke religious sentiments, and serve only the agendas of extremism.
