Statement on desecrating a copy of the Holy Quran in The Hauge
The Muslim World League condemns-in the strongest possible terms-the crime of desecrating a copy of the Holy Quran in front of several embassies in The Hague, committed by a group of extremists in The Hague, in a repeated disgraceful act that is provocative to the feelings of Muslims.
In a statement by the General Secretariat of the MWL, the Secretary-General of the MWL 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 warned of the dangers of these acts and clearly declared its rejection of them and all manifestations of "Islamophobia".
Dr. Al-Issa reiterated the warning against the dangers of practices that provoke hatred and outrage religious feelings, stressing that the time has come to take effective measures to prevent these heinous crimes, as they only serve the agendas of extremism leading to achieve the goals of its hateful ideology, and not provide official protection under a pretext rejected by normal logic, which harm the civilized concept of freedom. This extremist concept of freedom is becoming a haven for those who stir up hatred and religious and intellectual conflict. The world must make every effort to strengthen friendship and cooperation among peoples and nations, which requires everyone to look at the broad view, rather than a narrow one.
