Protest against Quran burning

An American church will burn the Holy Koran at Ground Zero, New York to mark the anniversary of 9/11 Twin Towers Suicide Attacks on World Trade Center. (PSF UOM).

PSF condemns this incident and is very surprised why Pakistani Govt and the so called Religious groups and parties are quiet at this?

Join PSF UOM & sign the petition against it to stop it if not this year, next year! follow the link!

A small Florida church Wednesday brushed aside global outrage and vowed to go ahead with burning some 200 Korans, as local officials drew up plans to try to tamp down the protest.

Administrative assistant for the evangelical Dove World Outreach Center, Fran Ingram, told AFP the event would proceed as planned on Saturday's anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks.

"Not for a moment have we considered otherwise," she said, even though the pastor Terry Jones has said he is praying for guidance.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has denounced the plans to burn up to 200 Korans as "disgraceful" and there has been a wave of international condemnation amid fears it will spur an angry backlash in the Islamic world.

Officials in small town of Gainesville were meeting Wednesday to draw up contingency plans with the fire and police departments ahead of the torching, due to take place around 6:00 pm (2200 GMT) Saturday.

City spokesman Bob Woods told AFP church officials would be in violation of the city's code 10-63, which prohibits open-air burning and would be subject to a 250 dollar fine.

However, Woods said arrests were also not out of the question.

"It would depend on what happens next after Gainesville fire and rescue and the Gainesville police department step in to extinguish the fire," he says. "We have a plan for contingencies."

The event has thrust an unwanted spotlight on the normally quiet university town of some 124,000 people situated in north-central Florida.
