Pastor Terry Jones, of the Dove World Outreach centre (a non denominational church in Florida), announced his plan to mourn the death of September 11 victims through the burning of the Holy Koran. He claimed that he intends to send a message to the perpetrators of the September 11 incident by doing this and also express his grievances against Islam and Shariah law. His act however holds all Muslims (for whom The Koran is sacred) around the world liable for the heinous act of September 11. However, his rejection of Islam as a religion has already been made clear while he wrote his controversial book “Islam is of the devil” and made it available on the internet for sale at some of his websites. Other merchandise with the title of the book is also available. It seems to the ordinary that he has already achieved what he has desired: publicity and profitability of his enterprise. However, what Pastor Terry Jones has failed to realize is that by his deeds he not only expressed his rejection and hatred towards the religion but has also alienated himself from Muslim population. In an interview with ABC news, President Mr. Barrack Obama has clearly expressed his distaste towards such an act. However, mere distaste towards this clear outrage is not enough to absorb the shockwaves which such an insane act will send through out the globe. In these times when social harmony is being restored.
Finally to Mr. Terry Jones: 'Be reasonable'.
