The Vatican has shared concern over an event called the 'Quran Burning Day' organized by American Evangelicals marking the Anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
According to Vatican Officials “these deplorable acts of violence, in fact, cannot be counteracted by an outrageous and grave gesture against a book considered sacred by a religious community”.
They add that “each religion, with its respective sacred books, places of worship and symbols, has the right to respect and protection”.
The Vatican sends its “deep sentiments of solidarity with those who were struck by these horrendous terrorist attacks”. But it added that “each religious leader and believer is also called to renew the firm condemnation of all forms of violence, in particular those committed in the name of religion”.
