[23-01-2023 01:13 PM]

Ammon News - Speaker of Lower House of Parliament Ahmed Safadi has condemned Saturday's burning of a copy of the Qur'an in Stockholm by a Swedish far-right politician as "an extremist act on par with any other act of terrorism", reiterating that exercising one's right to free speech does not entail disparaging other people's religions or beliefs.

During a session of the legislature on Monday, Safadi urged the government to address the Swedish embassy in Amman demanding that Stockholm condemn such actions and apologize unequivocally to all Muslims.

The speaker said that such behaviors offend Muslims and the Qur'an, which exhorts love, goodness, justice, equality, and the common good, and inflame the passions of billions of Muslims around the world.

"Such practices are absurdities that undermine security and stability and blatantly go against human, moral, and religious values and principles, and the Swedish government must put an end to them", Safadi added.
