Burning of Quran! What does it Reflect?

Quran is the last and most important Divine book for the Muslims around the globe. It provides them guidance in every walk of life and not only to Muslims to every individual on the planet. There had been few conspiracies going on against Muslims and Quran from a long time. Sometimes caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) were drawn to ignite Muslims and sometimes their holy book was humiliated but Muslims faced these challenges with utmost patience.
The recent sad incident happened on 20th march 2011 when member of the clergy Wayne Sapp beneath the management of Terry Jones burnt Quran in Florida church after the trial in which it was found that Quran was responsible for crimes and thus was pronounced guilty. The jury deliberated for about eight minutes. The book, which had been soaking for an hour in kerosene, was put in a metal tray in the center of the church, and Sapp started the fire with a barbecue lighter. The book burned for around 10 minutes while some onlookers posed for photos.

This is one of the saddest events not only for Muslims around the globe but for all the human beings of different religions and should be condemned by every one. This has already been condemned by every one including Vatican, Christians, Jews, Hindus and prominent world leaders.

This event is a conspiracy to ignite Muslims so that they can be labeled as terrorist and fanatics but infect this event and those who carried and supported this event are fanatics and terrorist. This reflects the mindset of those who carried it. There is no sense at all by trialing a book which cannot speak for itself. Has anywhere in the world such trial happened? Even an ignorant person will start laughing when he will be told that a book was trialed in court and was convicted guilty. Does it make sense of trialing a book? “Not at all”. Then why it was done? It was done to ignite Muslims; it was done to create differences of Muslims with other religions especially with Christians, it was done to destabilize the peace of the world. It cannot be termed as an idea of a fanatic notorious person to do this act. There must be some other forces behind him which asked him to carry out this act.

We being Muslims and believers of ALLAH and followers of Islam will not get ignited by this. We will not let this event to destabilize our relations with our friends. We are patient and we believe that Evil will be finished one day. We Muslims are not against any book, any religion or any human being. We want peace, stability and harmony in this world as others want. But at the same time we condemn such event and request all the governments that they should curb such acts which are being done to hurt followers of specific religion. Freedom of speech is the right of every one but it doesn’t mean that one can and should do anything which will hurt people around him/her.

We request U.S government which boast of the biggest democracy of the world to investigate this event and facts should be revealed. Those forces which did this notorious event should be brought to justice and public apology to Muslims should be tendered.
