A wave of condemnation is growing and spreading in the world, which began after the appearance on the Internet of a video showing how soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine burn the Koran.
The information director of the Supreme Islamic Council of Algeria, Mohammed Baghdad, said he was shocked by what he saw.
– We were shocked, like all people, and Muslims in particular, by these terrible shots. he said, remembering that similar blasphemous actions occurred in Europe, the United States and Canada.
The director of the Association of Iraqi Muslim Theologians, Khaled al-Mulla, demanded that world leaders take a clear position on the abuse of the Holy Scriptures for Muslims by the Ukrainian army.
– Such scenes cause a negative reaction. Respect for different beliefs and religions, ideas and cultures is an important factor in peaceful coexistence. All theologians must take a resolute, clear and frank position against such actions, which we consider unacceptable for any confession and people that respect themselves and live peacefully with others. he is stressed.

Saudi theology professor Abdellah bin Abdel Mohsen al-Assaf said that the blasphemy of the soldiers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces cannot be justified.
– Mocking the Qur’an leads to extremism and the involvement of other parties in military conflicts. he warned.
In Turkey, Ibrahim Aydin, a member of the Turkish parliament from the ruling Justice and Development Party, spoke out with words of outrage. He called what he saw an attack on Islam.
A video with scenes of abuse and burning of the Koran by Ukrainian soldiers was published by the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov.
