A recent incident of burning of holy Quran during attack on a mosque in Sweden has been condemned.
According to Stockholm Central Mosque, in the latest attack on its facility, a damaged copy of the Quran was left chained up and hanging at the entrance of mosque.
The administration of the mosque said that threats and attacks on mosque are occurring frequently in Sweden.
“Tying a destroyed Quran and hanging it to the garden bars next to the mosque door is humiliating for Muslims,” the mosque wrote on Facebook.
“Our mosque and our congregation receive threats very widely. Racists always make a new attempt to smear those who are not like themselves,” it said.
The Stockholm Central Mosque has shared photographs of attack and information to inform the public, and to voice concern against hate crime in Sweden.
Swedish and Danish national Rasmus Paludan is still leading the Quran-burning trips across the two Scandinavian countries despite protests that triggered riots.
Imam and director of the Stockholm Central Mosque, Mahmoud Khalfi, told Anadolu Agency that he “personally witnessed the Quran burning here in Stockholm” last December, “and I remember how hurtful it was.”
