Türkiye condemns attack on Quran, Turkish flag in Denmark

Türkiye has strongly condemned the "vile attack" on the Muslim holy book, the Quran, and a Turkish flag in Denmark.

Denouncing the late Friday incident as a "hate crime," the Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Saturday that Ankara will never accept such "vile actions being allowed under the guise of freedom of expression," SIA refers to Turkish media.

The ministry urged Danish authorities to take immediate action against the perpetrators, along with concrete measures to prevent further provocations that threaten social harmony and peaceful coexistence.

The Turkish National Defense Ministry also condemned “the vile, barbaric, and disgusting attack” in Denmark targeting the Quran and the Turkish flag.

This “wrongful attitude” of Denmark, which is also a NATO ally, is against both the spirit of alliance and universal values, it added.

Denmark should immediately find those responsible for committing this hate crime, it said.

Recent months have seen several acts of Quran burning, or attempts to do so, by Islamophobic figures or groups in northern Europe and Nordic countries.
