On Saturday, the Turkish Ministry of Defense condemned the attack on the Holy Quran and the Turkish flag in Denmark.

“We condemn the despicable, barbaric and heinous attack that targeted our holy book, the Holy Qur’an, and our glorious flag in Denmark,” the ministry said in a statement.

She added, “Denmark is a partner in the crime of hate by allowing attacks on sanctities that are common values ​​of humanity, under the pretext of freedom of expression.”

And she added, “Denmark’s allowing this terrorist and despicable attack is an irresponsible stance from it, and it contradicts the spirit of the alliance and universal values, and it is a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).”

The ministry indicated that Denmark’s wrong position would also harm its internal peace.

She called on Denmark to immediately undo the mistake, follow the example of civilized countries, and immediately hold accountable the “creatures” that committed the hate crime, in reference to the attack on the Holy Qur’an and the Turkish flag.

The extremist attack was carried out by supporters of a group called “Patrioterne Gar Live (Patriots Live)” in Denmark.

According to Anadolu Agency, the attack was broadcast live through the group’s Facebook account.

The perpetrators of the attack also raised anti-Islam banners, chanting insulting slogans, in addition to attacking the Turkish flag by burning.

Earlier on Saturday, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement that allowing such practices under the name of freedom of expression is categorically rejected.
