A majority in the Danish Parliament passed the so-called “Quran Law” on Thursday.

The law was adopted by the Socialdemokraterne, Moderaterne, Venstre, Radikale Venstre, and Jon Stephensen, with 94 votes in favor and 77 votes against.

The law makes the disrespectful treatment of texts with significant religious importance for a recognized religious community illegal. This means, among other things, that it will no longer be allowed to burn Qurans. It will also not be permissible to cut or step on the Quran.

The law is a response several demonstrations where Qurans were burned.
