LAHORE , Pakistan (AP) - Hundreds of Muslims attacked and burned two churches in Pakistan on Saturday after reports that a Christian man had desecrated Islam's holy book. No one was injured in the blazes.
A school, student hostel and the home of a priest were also torched by the crowd of about 1,500 Muslims near the town of Sangla Hill, about 80 miles northeast of Lahore, said police official Ali Asghar Dogar.
The attacks were being investigated. About two dozen people had been arrested, Dogar said.
The fires came a day after a local Muslim resident accused a Christian of burning a one-room Islamic school along with copies of the Quran. Dogar said the allegations were apparently leveled by people who lost money while gambling with the Christian man on Friday, but police had detained him and were investigating.
Shahbaz Bhatti, head of the All Pakistan Minorities Alliance - which promotes the rights of minorities in mainly Muslim Pakistan, denied the charges and condemned the attacks on the Roman Catholic and Protestant churches.

Great, perhaps the mob of Koranimals should burn those guys too for their unislamic activities. Oh never mind, Hindu and Christian kuffar make much better targets, and the sharia courts will got easier on y'all.
I think everyone should read the koran, & the best way to do that is to print it on toilet paper. Read it & wipe!
Too bad we are not allowed to reply in kind. I bet those Izzlimeo mosques burn real good.
It is becoming increasingly difficult for a Christian to live in peace in Muslim lands. I am told that the country of Oman allows religious freedom, but that is true of few others.
Frenchmen would be proud...
lol - great idea
when is it going into circulation???
Makes me wanna go buy one just so I can crap on it.
Time to hold a NATION WIDE KORAN BURNING.
We should set aside a day and burn millions of them.
I guess this was done by some "youths" who were disgruntled because they were forced into segregated housing, lacked jobs and were not properly integrated into the larger society.
So get some printed and sell it on ebay. You'll make a lot of money.
This is a white lie, understandably so. It is much more necessary than Bush reciting his great lie, Islam is the Religion of Peace.
You don't need to buy one. CAIR will send you a free quran.
"One must remember that in Islam we do not have any sacred relics or symbols. We are simply worshipping God while facing the Ka`bah; we are not worshipping the Ka`bah.
So why get upset? Suppose we could get the terrorists to set off IED's by marching a pig down the road with a copy of the Koran strapped to it's butt? Worth a try...
We need to round up all the muslims in America and get them the hell out of here.
