Massive Protests After Dozens of Qurans Burned in Bangladesh

In Bangladesh, Quran burning sparks furious rallies, officers injured.

The two men claimed that they had burned the Qurans because they were “very old and some had printing mistakes” when they were apprehended in Sylhet, a city in Bangladesh northeast and one of the country’s most conservative areas.

Shaikh said that police had “seized 45 copies of the burned Quran” and identified the suspects as Mahbub Alam and school principal Nurur Rahman.

In an effort to attack the two individuals accused of damaging the sacred texts, police said they used rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse a mob of “at least 10,000 people” overnight from Sunday to Monday, according to police officer Ajbahar Ali Shaikh.

Although he was unable to provide specifics of protester injuries, another police officer reported that at least 14 police officers had been hurt during the fights.

According to some Muslim thinkers, if a Quran is no longer useful, it may be politely disposed of.

Following a number of demonstrations that included public desecrations of the Quran, including burning pages on fire, tensions between Muslim countries and Sweden and Denmark erupted last month.

Both nations have denounced the desecrations while maintaining their “freedom of speech and assembly” rules. Bangladesh has a population of 170 million people, of which 90% are Muslims. The remaining population is primarily made up of Hindus and Christians.
