Pakistanis protest against Quran desecration by Nato forces in Afghanistan

Speakers addressing the participants of a protest rally against desecration of Holy Quran by NATO forces in Afghanistan said the incident proves just how morally l bankrupt the US forces are.

The protest staged outside Karachi Press Club Saturday was organized by Tanzeem-e-Islami.

Speakers said that the shameful act by the NATO forces is a despicable reaction against the disgraceful defeat that the US lead forces are facing in Afghanistan. The heinous act exposes the ugly face of the West that claims to be the torch-bearer of culture & civilization and religious rights.

The attempt to desecrate the last holy book of Allah hasn’t lessened its sanctity a bit just as spitting on moon dirties the mouth of the person himself, however, it is a precarious situation indeed that of the 57 Muslim countries none has the courage to stand-up against this nefarious act committed by the enemies of Islam.

Speakers urged the Muslim to wake up from their slumber and to stand-up against the forces that have make hurting their feelings by design and purpose.
