Al-Azhar top mufti, Sheikh Ahmad al-Tayyip, has posted a message to condemn the recent Qur'an burning in Sweden as brutal and act of crime, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
He said," This was a racist and hateful act abhorred by all human civilizations" and added," This move provides the fuel for terrorism which both the west and east are suffering from."
Ahmad al-Tayyip stressed," These crimes will fuel the hatred, tear down the security in societies and threatens the hopes for dialogue among civilizations."
Grand mufti of Al-Azhar said," Burning holy Qur'an is in fact insulting the feelings of nearly one billion Muslims and history will recall that instance as a shameful measure."
