Breaking news: Turkey has been the only voice against the scandals in Sweden in the last period. After the scandalous act of Rasmus Paludan yesterday in Sweden, whose NATO membership process continues, a remarkable statement came from Prime Minister Kristersson.
“JUST BE LEGAL DOESN’T MEAN IT IS APPROPRIATE”
Sharing on his social media account at night, Kristersson said:
“Freedom of expression is a fundamental part of democracy. But not everything that is legal may be appropriate. Burning a book that is sacred to many is a highly disrespectful act. I share the sentiments of all Muslims who are disturbed by what is happening in Stockholm today.”
STRONG REACTION FROM TURKEY: THIS IS A HATE CRIME
In the statement made by Turkey, there was a harsh reaction to the incident. The statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs included the following statements:
“Despite all the warnings of our country, we condemn the despicable attack against our holy book, the Qur’an, in Sweden today (21 January). we do not accept it in any way because this is a hate crime.
This despicable act is also another indication of the alarming level reached by Islamophobia, racist and discriminatory trends in Europe.
We call on the Swedish authorities to take necessary action against the perpetrators of this hate crime and to take concrete measures in solidarity with all countries and international organizations against Islamophobia.”
