Venezuelan leader Maduro condemns desecration of Holy Quran

Sweden and Denmark are on the agenda with their vile Quran protests. While the authorities of the two countries have not reacted sufficiently to the scandalous events, reactions from the world continue to come. Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro was among the leaders who reacted to the burning of the Quran.


Speaking on Al Mayadeen's 'With Maduro and More' program, Venezuelan leader Maduro said that those who condone the burning of holy books in Europe are indirectly implicated by their silence.

 "I feel in my heart the discontent of Muslim peoples around the world when they see the burning of the Quran,” he said.

Maduro also criticized the media for not covering the issue, adding that he "strongly condemns" hate crimes against Muslims and the activities of "extreme right-wing and racist circles" that have burned Qurans in Europe.


"I ask myself as a Christian, how would we Christians feel if they burned the Bible in another country? If someone does that, we would feel great sadness and it would be a great insult,” Maduro added.

In recent months there have been several Quran burning demonstrations in Denmark and Sweden. Most Muslim countries have condemned the demonstrations and some have called on the Swedish and Danish ambassadors to issue letters of protest.

Earlier this week, Swedish Foreign Minister Tobias Billstrom pledged to pay special attention to relations with Muslim countries, and Danish police temporarily tightened controls at the country's borders for security reasons following recent Quran-burning demonstrations.
