OIC strongly condemns tearing of Holy Quran copy in Netherlands

JEDDAH, 25th January, 2023 (WAM) — The Secretariat General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has condemned in the strongest terms the tearing of a part of the Holy Quran by an extremist in The Hague, Netherlands.

In a statement on Tuesday, the Secretariat General of OIC reiterated that “such behaviour fuels feelings of Islamophobia in the world and works against calls for co-existence and freedom of belief.”

OIC underscored the importance of encouraging dialogue, understanding and cooperation among religions, cultures and civilisations and rejection of hatred and extremism to achieve peace worldwide.
