9/11 Burn a Quran day in United States

I strongly condemn Pastor Jones for his stunt to burn the Holy Quran on September 11th, this vile action is designed to cause distress towards Muslims and many people of all faiths and I urge him to reconsider. The burning of any religious scriptures is unacceptable and must be stopped. I welcome the strong comments of President Obama and his Government but we urge urgent action now to stop this stunt.

With freedom of choice comes responsibility and I call on the US Government to take urgent action to stop this racist bigot.

The coming of faith leaders across the United States is comforting to the Muslim communities and an indication that that the burning of the Quran is an attack on all decent tolerant people. This so called man of faith is going against the teachings of the faith of Christianity and there is no link between the Quran and terrorism.

September 11th is a day to remember the victims and not carry out stunts that will lead to community division, in this I hope he fails. The ever increasing attacks on Islam and Muslims is worrying for our communities and we would urge people to reflect on the acceptance of suck attacks as justified.

I urge a peaceful, tolerant response to his actions, our message is of non violence and I hope people understand this.”
