The AICP Denounces the Burning of the Noble Quran
The Association of Islamic Charitable Projects condemns in the strongest terms the repeated burning, insulting, and trampling of the Noble Qur’an in Sweden by a group of well-known extremists. These reprehensible acts, which constitute a provocation to the feelings of hundreds of millions of Muslims, are unjustified under the pretext of freedom of expression because they fuel hatred and incite violence.
We call on the international community to stand responsibly in the face of these criminal acts, and to take all decisive and serious measures that are consistent with the seriousness and enormity of this act, especially in its timing with the celebrations of the blessed Eid al-Adha and the Hai season.
The AICP calls on the countries of the world to hold an emergency meeting and to take all deterrent steps and official measures to ensure that this heinous crime is not repeated.
We also call for the Grand Mufti of countries and continents to take similar steps to curb these provocative acts.
Awareness and vigilance are needed to thwart this extremist plot. The required official procedures must be promptly implemented to avoid negative repercussions because extremism on one side drags and feeds extremism on the other side.
