Do you think it is right to abuse any holy book?

Reader comment on item: Amazon.com's Koran Desecration Problem

Submitted by yahya noori (Pakistan), May 21, 2005 at 12:31

Religeous exploitation, whether done by a Muslim, Christian, Hindu or Jew, in my view, is deplorable, condemnable and punishable. It should not be allowed and should not be protected. I believe, creating suspicion in any body's claim by finding some other people responsible of misdirecting the public opinion is not righteous.

The muslims should not be treated in a special way in America but the shouldn't be treated in suspicious way either. If some of the Muslims are bad, this label can not be attached to the whole Muslim community. And about desecration of a holy book, if sufficient actions are not taken against those responsible, the extremist forces in the Muslim world will be ready to persuade the common man that this war against terror is war against Islam, and this will be in no way in favor of the West.
