Arab Parliament condemns burning of Quran copy
CAIRO, March 26 (KUNA) -- The Arab Parliament on Sunday decried the burning of a copy of the Holy Book the Quran in the Danish capital.
Recurrence of such provocative acts foments hatred, violence, threatens communities' security and stability, said the parliament chairperson, Adel Al-Asoumi, in a statement.
"The burning of the sacred book is a barbaric act," he said, noting that the provocative act happened during the fasting month of Ramadan.
Al-Asoumi called for dissemination of ideal values such as co-existence and tolerance among peoples of the globe.
"Those militants will not attain their vile objectives because the Islamic religion will remain standing, unruffled with such systematic campaigns," he said, urging the international community to prohibit acts intended to desecrate all religions.
Earlier this week, anti-Islam fanatics set a copy of the Quran afire along with the Turkish Flag outside premises of the Turkish embassy in Copenhagen. (end) ms.mfm.rk
