ANKARA (AA) – Jordan on Saturday strongly condemned the desecration of the Holy Quran in Denmark, calling it "a manifestation of Islamophobia."

In a statement, the Foreign Ministry strongly condemned irresponsible actions that incite emotions among Muslims, promote hatred, and jeopardize peaceful coexistence.

It emphasized that these acts reflect Islamophobia, encouraging violence and disrespect towards religions, and urged the international community to respond with action.

The ministry also called for the enactment of laws criminalizing the desecration of symbols and values considered sacred in religion, as well as the promotion of a culture of peace and “acceptance of others,” and also the prevention of extremism and fanaticism.

Meanwhile, Oman also condemned on Saturday the burning of a copy of the Holy Quran in the Danish capital of Copenhagen by an ultranationalist group, stating that such actions incite violence and hatred.

In a statement, Oman urged the international community to "consider such actions that insult religions and beliefs, incite animosity and hatred" as a crime.

Separately, Saudi Arabia condemned the burning of a copy of the Holy Quran in Denmark and expressed concern over the Danish government's measures to prevent disrespect to the Muslims' holy book in Copenhagen.

Saudi Arabia, according to the Foreign Ministry, strongly condemns any action that incites violence and hatred among religions.

It also warned against repeating such violations that incite Muslim sentiment.

On July 21, members of the Islamophobic and far-right nationalist group called "Danske Patrioter (Danish Patriots)" burned a copy of the Quran in front of Iraq's Embassy in Copenhagen.

They displayed anti-Islamic banners and shouted insulting slogans while disrespectfully handling the Iraqi flag and the Quran.
