Muslim Council of Elders Welcomes Danish Parliament's Adoption of a Law that Criminalizes the Burning of the Holy Quran

The Muslim Council of Elders, under the chairmanship of His Eminence Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, welcomes the decision by the Danish Parliament to ban the inappropriate treatment of religious texts of significant importance to recognized religious communities. This law, it notes, effectively bans the burning of the Holy Quran.

The Council emphasizes that enacting this law is an important step towards promoting a spirit of tolerance, mutual coexistence, and respect for sacred religious texts and symbols. It also calls on other nations facing similar assaults on freedoms and religious sanctities to enact similar legislation to counteract bigoted, hateful, and Islamophobic speech.
