Erdogan reacted angrily to French personalities over statement on Quran

Vastavam web: President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has reacted angrily to a group of some 300 well-known French personalities who urged prominent Muslims to denounce anti-Jewish and anti-Christian references in the Quran.Addressing a ruling party meeting on today, Erdogan described the group that includes actor Gerard Depardieu, singer Charles Aznavour and the former president, Nicolas Sarkozy, as “despicable” and accused them of attacking scriptures sacred to Muslims.

The group signed a manifesto which was published in Le Parisien newspaper on Sunday. The statement urged Muslims to denounce some references so “no believer can refer to a holy text to commit a crime.”
