Malta: Ahmadiyya Muslim Community condemns desecration of Holy Quran at Mater Dei hospital
Several copies of Muslim holy book the Quran kept in Mater Dei hospital’s multi-faith room were desecrated yesterday, the Ministry of Health said this morning.
Slices of pork laid inside copies of the holy book, according to photos posted to Facebook by the Islamic Community of Malta.
Vandals also left behind a printout featuring a photo of Father Jacques Hamel, a Christian priest whose throat was slit by Islamic State terrorists in Normandy earlier this week, under the heading ‘Victim of Islam’.
Hospital authorities have reported the case to the police.
In a statement this afternoon, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Malta categorically condemned the act.
