Shehbaz Sharif on Sunday called on the civilized world to strongly condemn the highly offensive acts of desecration of the Holy Quran in Europe.

In a tweet, the prime minister urged for global unity to fight Islamophobia. “The highly offensive desecration of the Holy Quran by a Danish politician is the third such incident in a row that should be strongly condemned by the civilized world,” PM Sharif tweeted.

“The need for global unity to fight Islamophobia couldn’t be more urgent than it is now,” he said, adding, “We are deeply hurt.”

Pakistan’s Foreign Office on Saturday condemned “in the strongest terms” the act of desecration of the Holy Quran by Danish politician Rasmus Paludan a day before, according to an official statement.

It said the “repetition of the vile act leaves little doubt in the minds of Muslims around the world that freedom of expression is being blatantly abused to spread religious hatred and incitement to violence”.
