Ms Basarudin can find help

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

Submitted by Gloria Stewart (United States), May 31, 2005 at 10:41

Poor Ms Basarudin! One can only imagine the inner turmoil she must have endured when finding her (used) copy of the Koran "desecrated". I have a suggestion for some therapy for her.

Virtually every day in a Muslim majority country -- with pitifully few exceptions -- Christians are persecuted. It may be physical or verbal, and their religious symbols are all too frequently desecrated. Yet they do not riot, they do not hold press conferences and make demands. Their forebearance should be an example for Ms Basarudin.

Meanwhile, my condolences to her.
