LAHORE: Residents in Raiwind staged protests and disrupted life in the area after another Quran was desecrated in the area on Wednesday morning the second this week.
Police lodged a first information report (FIR) against unidentified individual(s) for desecrating a copy of the Quran in a mosque toilet. The FIR was registered on the complaint of Bashir Ahmad, the qari of Masjid Gulzar-e-Habib.
Police said that a copy of the Holy Quran had been taken from the mosque and thrown in the toilet.
Muhammad Hanif, who lives next to the mosque, found the Quran in the toilet at around 5.30am. He brought the incident to the attention of Bashir Ahmad, who was preaching to students in the mosques courtyard at the time.
After the incident, residents blocked roads, burnt tyres and chanted slogans against the act. They started processions from Tablighi Markaz towards Kasur Road and forcibly shut down shops and markets along the way. Police tried to disperse the protestors at the Kasur Road railway crossing, but failed.
The police then resorted to baton charging and fired teargas shells, arresting 11 protestors in the process, while cases were registered against 60 people.

But who calls the police when people burn the American Flag?
I confess. I did it.
Ask Me if I Care About Mishandling of Koran
These people obviously don't have much to do. Who exactly were they protesting to and what did they expect to accomplish?
Boy, now that the "protest" is over, I'll bet things are radically different and much, much better in Pakistan aren't they? It's no longer a sh**hole.
Mussies doing it themselves to attract attention and whip up rage.
Newsweak will soon reveal that those rascally Gitmo US guards have been visiting Lahore, Pakistan on their 3-day passes just to desecrate Qurans.
You're shamefully America-centred, pal.:-^)
Can't you imagine that the good people of Pakistan begin to see the truth and to act accordingly, throwing that deceitful piece of ideological pulp-fiction, the Koran, to the place it deserves?
