The Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the burning of a copy of the Holy Quran

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates warned of the danger of carrying out provocations that fuel religious conflicts, and said in a statement, “The Ministry condemns the burning of a copy of the Holy Qur’an in Sweden, and warns of the danger of carrying out similar provocations that fuel religious conflicts and increase hate speech and extremism.”

The ministry affirmed that “the sacred freedom of expression of the individual deviates from its purpose when it assaults the freedom of belief of his brother in humanity.”

And she considered that “this rejected work completely contradicts what Lebanon symbolizes as a message of coexistence and partnership between Christianity and Islam, and what humanity aspires to in terms of dialogue between religions and civilizations.”
