ISLAMABAD – Pakistani Prime Minister has joined several Muslim nations in denouncing the desecration of the Holy Quran in Sweden.
In a social media post on Sunday, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif condemned vile attack on Islam’s holy book. The premier said no words are enough to adequately condemn the abhorrable act of desecration of the Holy Quran by a right-wing extremist in Sweden, calling it unacceptable.
He added that the garb of the freedom of expression cannot be used to hurt the religious emotions of 1.5 billion Muslims across the world.
