Chris Chrisham writes:

...the court was asked to confiscate and destroy all copies of the Quran in India because the Quran contained dozens of passages which "incite violence, disturb public tranquility, promote, on ground of religion, feelings of enmity, hatred and ill-will between different religious commuities and insult other religions or religious beliefs of other communities in India"
