Do they dare to burn the Quran?
9/11 is comming closer by the minute. I doubt if this threat will be carried out?
General David Petraeus's warning on this issue:
But they insist:
It seems like a very small group (12 or so) of evangelicals are doing this under their 1st amendment right (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704358904575478241873665072.html). First of all I hope this group will take more rational approach. Even if they don't, as we know nuts are everywhere, we should remain peaceful. I was told by elders in united India it was very easy to start religious riots. All you needed was chopped head of cow outside any temple. There are 8 million Muslims in US and then all across the globe with heaviest concentration in ME. But I am afraid the strongest reaction for this nonsense 'd come from South Asia, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Afghanistan. In county where it may happen will remain peaceful. Muslims and Christians will live peacefully but in Pakistan we may see few lives lost because someone did something 10,000 miles away. Few months back on face book incident Pakistan was only country where FB was banned and then tons of other sites and protests kept on growing. And finally US or facebook didn't do anything special and gradually all bans were lifted. When Babri mosque was demolished we burnt Hindu communities in interior Sindh. I hope even if these nuts carried on their senseless acts we won't. We need to learn how to peacefully register our anguish.
I also hope that everyone registers a peaceful protest and no life is lost or damage to property occurs.
"but in Pakistan we may see few lives lost because someone did something 10,000 miles away."
Yes this is the strange way of protests in Pakistan. 'A' did something to 'B' in a location 'C', so I would burn my home..
جھالت کی کوئ حد نھیں
Allah na karay aisi koi harkat ho .
agar hoye ,tou Allah un se samjh lay ga .
Allah ne apni kitab ki hifazat ka wada kiya hay .
Quran har bar jalta hey...
jab kesi masjid main kesi imam bargha
ya kesi darbar main dhmaka hota hey
Qyran us din bhi jala hoga jab
eik hafiz ko sialkot main dandon se mara tha
ya eik shia alim ko katal ker dala tha
Very well said. Couldn't agree more.
what will be the response from the muslim world if they burn Quran? Whats sad is that muslims in the east are in protest of imperalism of the West so American, British flags are burnt, and its the double policies in Israel and now Kashmir not because we hate Christians or Jews..... I don't recall anyone ever burning a bible, and no reason to as it is a holy book also.
I think Muslim Community must Act fast cause this could lead to bigger problem for USA...
There was a sense here that Eid might well fall on 9/11 this year. But now it would appear that it could be tomorrow like in KSA. So that potential message we need not deal with here.
But what an Iranian commander just said covers it perfectly: The Koran burning action is a PR ploy to take people's minds off the fact that 9/11 was an inside job, a false flag terrorist attack attributed to Muslim "hijackers".
ZK, you're wrong. The Bible (New Testament) is regularly burnt in Israel by the Jews. The Koran, no doubt, also. If you don't know about it, then you're not reading the right sources.
"I think Muslim Community must Act fast cause this could lead to bigger problem for USA... "
Thank you for expressing your only concern on the matter ("problem for USA"). But you didn't need to -- We never had any doubts about your loyalties. ;-)
"what will be the response from the muslim world if they burn Quran?"
They CANNOT burn the Quran, no matter how hard they try...sure they can burn some copies/paper it's printed on but Quran is forever...
_"The Bible (New Testament) is regularly burnt in Israel by the Jews."
Funny you mention it. I came across this just yesterday:
Orthodox Jews set fire to hundreds of copies of the New Testament in the latest act of violence against Christian missionaries in the Holy Land.
Or Yehuda Deputy Mayor Uzi Aharon said missionaries recently entered a neighborhood in the predominantly religious town of 34,000 in central Israel, distributing hundreds of New Testaments and missionary material.
After receiving complaints, Aharon said, he got into a loudspeaker car last Thursday and drove through the neighborhood, urging people to turn over the material to Jewish religious students who went door to door to collect it.
"The books were dumped into a pile and set afire in a lot near a synagogue," he said. ...
an extreme action warrants an extreme reaction...
so may be it is time muslim leadership come out and take control of their affairs-
"The Islamic Society of North America held a news conference at the National Press Club to discuss the country’s reaction to the proposed Islamic Cultural Center near Ground Zero. Leaders from the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim faiths discussed how their religions can work together to combat what they call “an atmosphere of fear and intolerance” toward Islam."
Breaking news from CNN .
-- Rev. Terry Jones of World Outreach Center in Florida says he is canceling Quran burning event on Saturday.
"I don't recall anyone ever burning a bible, and no reason to as it is a holy book also."
