In its statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs warned that the recurrence of these “disgraceful and unjustified incidents" would lead to serious consequences.
Such incidents incite violence, extremism, Islamophobia, and blasphemy while threatening coexistence in societies, read the statement.
Furthermore, Egypt stressed that countries should be committed to banning these incidents and preventing them from recurring by taking measures to protect freedom of belief and hold blasphemers accountable.

Shoukry said that these phenomena have increased violence and hatred against Muslim communities. He praised Denmark's latest measures to stop incidents of burning the Holy Quran in the country.
