Iran Slams Sweden for Passive Response to Quran Desecration, Calls for Action

The Foreign Ministry of Iran has strongly criticized the Swedish government and police for their perceived inaction in the face of repeated desecration of the Holy Quran. In a statement released on Sunday, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kanaani condemned the most recent incident in Malmo, stressing that actions must speak louder than words.

The recent Quran burning incident in Malmo, where Salwan Momika attempted to desecrate the holy book under police protection, drew condemnation from Iran. Three individuals who tried to prevent the act were detained by Swedish law enforcement, raising concerns about the Swedish authorities' handling of such incidents.

Kanaani deplored the recurrence of such acts, describing them as a violation of human rights principles. He expressed concern that hate crimes and offensive actions against the values of over two billion Muslims persist amid what he perceives as passive police presence.

He emphasized that mere verbal condemnations from Swedish officials are insufficient and called for practical and effective measures to address these actions. Kanaani urged the Swedish government to uphold human rights principles, promote morality, and foster peaceful coexistence among religions through tangible actions.
