THE BURNING OF THE QURAN AND THE DECLINE OF ISLAMOPHOBIC THINKING
Leader of Danish far-right political party Hard Line, Rasmus Paludan repeated the action again. He leaded the protestors against Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erodgan through the burning of the Holy Qur’an on Saturday, January 19, 2023. The action brought condemnation from many Muslim countries through out the world, including Indonesia.
It was not the first time for Rasmun Paludan protesting by burning the Qur’an. Last year, he did the same thing in front of Raslatt Mosque, Jonkoping, Sweden.
Based on that, Jamaah Ansharu Syariah states the following:
- Jamaah Ansharu Syariah condemns the action of Rasmus Paludan, which can potentially provoke the Muslim, or even raise revenge action, or Muslim’s protesting act.
- Jamaah Ansharu Syariah feels that what has been done by Rasmus Paludan is an ocular proof of islamophobia still growing rapidly amongst European politician circle. Obviously, it becomes a heavy duty for European countries to overcome with.
- Islamopobhia or prejudice against Islam, is a decline in thinking. While the scientists start finding so many proofs about the truth of Qur’an, the islamophobia sufferers even blindfold themselves from the truth, because of inconsequent hatred.
- As a fellowman, we are encouraged to respect faith and religion’s one to another. Rasmus Paludan’s act obviously hurts the harmony of inter religion relationship.
- Jamaah Ansharu Syariah demands all Muslim around the world not to be provoked and react wisely
- From this incident, Jamaah Ansharu Syariah hopes that humankind will be more interested to study Qur’an. Especially for Muslim, Jamaah Ansharu Syariah encourages Muslim to study and understand the beauty and perfection of Qur’an more, in order to implant the steady faith of Qur’an, so it can be implemented in daily life.
- Jamaah Ansharu Syariah prays to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala for giving any guidance to the people insulting His verses. But if they do not repent, hopefully Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala destroys and gives them worthy revenge.
Thus our statements, hopefully Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala protects and glorifies Islam and the Muslim. Amien Yarobbal Alamin
Hasbunallahu wani’mal wakiil, ni’mal maula wa ni’mannashiir.
