Morocco's ambassador to Sweden was recalled due to "Burning of the Quran

Morocco's ambassador to Sweden was recalled on Wednesday for an indefinite period following the incident.

The Swedish charge d'affaires in Rabat was also called by the Moroccan Foreign Ministry, which voiced the country's "strong condemnation of this attack and its rejection of this unacceptable act," according to the official news agency.

The US Department of State expressed its opposition to the burning of the Quran. “The burning of religious texts is disrespectful and hurtful, and what might be legal is certainly not necessarily appropriate,” spokesperson Vedant Patel said.

Iran’s foreign ministry spokesperson called the incident “provocative, ill-considered, and unacceptable”. “The government and people of the Islamic Republic of Iran… do not tolerate such an insult and strongly condemn it,” said Nasser Kanani. “The Swedish government is expected to seriously consider the principle of responsibility and accountability in this regard while preventing the repetition of insulting the holy sanctities,” he added.

The Saudi foreign ministry also condemned the burning. “These hateful and repeated acts cannot be accepted with any justification,” it said.

Egypt said Momika’s act was “shameful”, especially since it took place on Eidul Adha. Its foreign ministry voiced concern about “repeated incidents” of the burning of the Quran in Europe. “Egypt expresses its deep concern about the repeated incidents of burning the Holy Qur’an and the recent escalation of Islamophobia and crimes of blasphemy of religions in some European countries, affirming its total rejection of all reprehensible practices that affect the constants and religious beliefs of Muslims,” it said in a statement.
