Grand Ayatollah Fazel Lankarani's Statement on the Desecration of the Holy Quran by American Soldiers

In the name of Allah, the Merciful the Compassionate

After praise to God and salutations on the Holy Prophet (pbuh).

The global arrogance was not expected to go as far as to confront Islam and all the divine religions by openly desecrating and insulting the Quran so as to give psychological torture to the Muslim prisoners in Guantanamo jail.  By doing so, the American soldiers have hurt the feelings of a billion Muslims and followers of all divine religions across the world.  The Holy Quran is the greatest of all books and the most perfect of them. In fact, desecration of the Quran is desecration of all divine books.  Praise belongs to Allah; the zealous Muslims across the world have reacted strongly but it is necessary that they show their deep hatred and disgust at the criminal U.S. government.

We pray to Almighty Allah to eradicate the evil of the world arrogance from the Islamic countries and give them protection under the blessed attention of the Imam of the Time, the Twelfth Imam – May Allah hasten his reappearance.
