Turkish FM denounces profanationSeptember 28, 2023
The Turkish Foreign Ministry condemned on September 23 the acts of profanity committed against Islam in the Netherlands.
Provocative acts of insulting the Koran, or Islamic scripture, were perpetrated in front of embassies of Turkey and other Islamic countries in the Netherlands.
As to this, the Turkish Foreign Ministry asserted that a provocative hate campaign to defile religion and believers is being waged under the signboard of “freedom of speech” and censured European countries for conniving at such deeds. Demanding those countries where such acts are committed take effective measures against the provocative acts, the ministry emphasized that sacrilege against Islam is being recognized as a religious hate action and a violation of international law by the United Nations.
It demanded the Dutch authorities take a measure to punish the criminals and prevent the recurrence of such incident.
