The Holy Quran was earlier desecrated in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, drawing strong condemnation from a number of countries, including Pakistan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Iraq, and Iran.

The Swedish government also condemned the burning of the Quran in front of Stockholm’s largest mosque as a “Islamophobic” act.

In a statement, the foreign ministry said, “The Swedish Government fully understands that the Islamophobic acts committed by individuals at demonstrations in Sweden can be offensive to Muslims,” according to ARY News.

The statement continued, “We strongly condemn these acts, which in no way represent the opinions of the Swedish government.

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which is based in Saudi Arabia and has its headquarters there, asked for coordinated action to put an end to Quran burnings in the future, which is what sparked the condemnation.

The 57-member body met at its Jeddah offices to talk about the incident on Wednesday in which Salwan Momika, a 37-year-old Iraqi living in Sweden, lit a number of Quranic pages on fire, according to ARY News.
