Another Koran burner gets his collar felt
This time it’s in Strasbourg. A YouTube video of a man making a paper aeroplane out of a Koran page, then burning and urinating on its ashes, provoked a mosque official to inform the authorities.
The man, who had given his name and location on the video, has now been questioned by police.
Abdeaziz Choukri of the Strasbourg Mosque spoke with the man before calling the police:
He told me ‘We are in France and we can burn a book on Winnie the Pooh, in the same way we can burn the Koran. He was totally coherent and he didn’t seem to realise the impact of his acts.
The charge that the religious authorities are filing against him: incitement of racial hatred.
