Attacks on Quran continue in Denmark

In Denmark, the attacks on the Muslim holy book have persisted, with a recent incident involving an Iranian-born Danish woman desecrating a copy of the Quran in the capital city, Copenhagen. The act of desecration has likely caused significant distress among the Muslim community and sparked concerns about religious tensions in the country.
Firoozeh Bazrafkan shredded a copy of the Quran in front of the Iranian Embassy on Saturday.

Wearing a t-shirt, reading: “Woman,” “Life,” “Freedom,” she shared footage of the desecration of the Quran, defining her provocative act as “an art performance.”

Recent months have seen repeated acts of Quran burning or desecration, or attempts by Islamophobic figures or groups, especially in northern European and Nordic countries, drawing outrage from Muslim countries and the world.
