Anyone recall the OIC condemning the Taliban for sending suicide bombers to blow up mosques filled with Korans?
(FNA) – Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu deplored the burning of the Holy Quran by the US forces in Afghanistan, and called for swift action to punish those responsible for the provocative act.
In a statement on Thursday, Ihsanoglu described the incident as a “deplorable act of incitement”, and said that the act runs “contrary to the common efforts of the OIC and that of the international community …to combat intolerance, and incitement to hatred based on religion and belief.”
The statement also called on “the concerned authorities to take swift and appropriate disciplinary action against those responsible.”
Media reports said that at least twenty Afghans have been killed since the beginning of protests on Tuesday.
