Pastor Terry Jones cancels his plan to burn copies of the Holy Quran on 11 September 2010
No one in this world should have right to disgrace the peaceful people of other religions. If a group of terrorists have committed a disaster it does not mean that all Muslims are the same. This type of decisions can not create peace rather will blow more anger into the people and more fights will take place in the World which is of no use. Better is to deal the issues sensibly in future as well.

I say exactly the same thing about Jones' Burn a Koran day as I said about the Ground Zero mosque.

A right to do this? Yes.


Wise and prudent to do this? Probably not.

Will this accomplish the goals expressed by those pushing it? No... in either case.

Jones' publicity stunt finally falls flat. He had more people showing up to his press conferences than showing up to his Sunday services. You can always tell a nominal Christian from a true one by their actions.

Thank gods. People have the right to free speech but I think that comes with the responsibility of understanding when "free speech" becomes "IRL trolling"

The only thing is if it was any other organisation or religion nobody would care .He may without knowing made his point.Islam cannot handle criticism. The same people who would go on about freedom of expression if it had been the bible, have been silenced because they know there are actual consequences of offending muslims.
