Danish FM condemns sacrilege of Holy Quran

Danish Foreign Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen in a telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amirabdollahian stressed that his government condemned any insult to religious sanctities and abuse of freedom of speech.

The Danish foreign minister expressed regret over the sacrilege of the holy Quran, and said that Denmark "strongly condemns any act of insulting the holy Qur'an".

"Although the main pillar of the Danish constitution is freedom of speech, religion and peaceful demonstrations, some abuse it, which we consider unacceptable," he said.

The top Danish top diplomat added that nobody should think that the Danish people are like those few people who do acts of Quran sacrilege. 

Amirabdullahian, for his part, described the initiative of Denmark in making the phone call and the stance of the Danish government in condemning this action as commendable and emphasized the necessity of punishing those who insult the Quran.

The top Iranian diplomat condemned the recent cases of desecration of the Holy Quran, and said that freedom of speech is not like that religious values are targeted and attacked. "Accordingly, the repetition of such ridiculous and insulting actions, which brings back the memory of the era of Jahiliyyah or ignorance, is condemned in the strongest term possible."

Amirabdollahian said that Quran desecration not only hurts the feelings of Muslims, but also those of all Abrahamic religions followers and for that the UN passed the recent resolution.

The Iranian foreign minister further said that considering the repetition of the abhorrent phenomenon of sacrilege of the Holy Quran and the warnings conveyed to Denmark through diplomatic channels, the Danish government is seriously expected to prevent the repetition of such behaviors with an abiding sense of responsibility and taking effective measures to make the perpetrators hold to account with severe punishment.

In the call, the two sides emphasized the importance of maintaining and strengthening the existing bilateral relations.
