Saturday, a Swedish politician named Rasmus Paludan from the Stram Kurs party, burnt a copy of the Holy Quran amidst protests outside the Turkish Embassy in Stockholm.

In turn, Jordan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the burning of the Holy Quran, affirming the Kingdom's rejection and condemnation of this act, which incites hatred and violence and threatens peaceful coexistence.

The Ministry emphasized that spreading and promoting a culture of peace and acceptance of one other, raising awareness of common values of respect and rejecting extremism, intolerance and incitement to hatred, is a collective responsibility that every individual must abide by regardless of their background or religious beliefs.
