Denmark Parliament Debates Bill to Ban Quran Burning

Sudan Events – Sumaya Sayed

Denmark’s parliament will debate on Tuesday, a bill to ban Quran burnings, after a string of desecrations of Islam’s holy book (QURAN) sparked anger in Muslim countries.
Nearly 1,000 protesters attempted to march to the Danish embassy in Baghdad’s fortified Green Zone in late July, following a call by firebrand cleric Moqtada Sadr.
Denmark’s government said the tensions posed a threat to national security.
The bill aims to make it a criminal offence to “publicly or with the intention of dissemination in a wider circle to treat a text with strong religious significance for a religious community… inappropriately,” according to a summary on the parliament’s website.
