Burning qurans vs. printing them

Reader comment on item: What's True Islam? Not for U.S. [Government] to Say
in response to reader comment: The US jails an enemy of Islam

Dear Dr Pipes, Rev Terry Jones was arrested for his attempt to burn qurans. Most Muslims have never read quran because they are either illiterate or because translating quran into world's other languages is discouraged. I think the free world should translate quran into local languages, cut CDs of its recitals in these laguages and distribute free copies of printed and spoken versions to the Muslims who have never read Qurans. Let the believers read for themselves that for every 5:31 in quran, there is a 5:32. Hindus, Buddists, Jews and Christians have spent centuries questioning their scriptures. Let the process begin in Islam as well.
