FO summons Norwegian envoy to protest desecration of Holy Quran

ISLAMABAD -UNS- The Foreign Office on Saturday summoned the ambassador of Norway to convey the “deep concern” of the government and people of Pakistan over an incident of desecration of the Holy Quran in the Norwegian city of Kristiansand.

During the meeting, Pakistan’s condemnation of the action was reiterated, a statement issued by the FO said.

“It was underscored that such actions hurt the sentiments of 1.3 billion Muslims around the world, including those in Pakistan,” the press release said, adding that such actions could not be justified in the name of “freedom of expression”.

An anti-Islam rally in Kristiansand had turned violent last week after its leader attempted to set fire to a copy of the Quran despite warnings from police officials.
