British Muslims express their outrage at desecration of the Quran

“The Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) condemns the latest attack on Islam and all that is sacred to the Muslims. The reported flushing of the Holy Quran down the toilet by US soldiers at Guantánamo Bay detention centre represents the extreme contempt held for Islam and Muslims by the perpetrators of this shameful act which regrettably has been nurtured by the policies of the US Administration at all levels.”

MAB press release, 14 May 2005
