Iran Blasts Qur'an Burning in US

“Such radical acts are the result of Islamophobic moves in the US and those who have committed such crimes are contributing to US hegemonic plots, which seek to create a rift between divine religions,” Mehmanparast said Thursday.

He expressed concern over the desecration of the holy Qur'an in the US and described the move as “blasphemous and repugnant”.

“The US government, under the international norms and laws, is obliged to prevent the spread of religious hatred,” he went on to say.

American evangelical preacher Wayne Sapp on Sunday set fire to a copy of Qur'an in a small church in Florida.

Sapp, a member of the Dove World Outreach Center, claimed that the holy book had been found "guilty" of crimes in the course of an eight-month trial and was therefore "executed."

Terry Jones, the head of Dove World Outreach Center who had planned to burn Qur'an last year on the anniversary of September 11, 2001 attacks, was also present during the event.

Jones' plan had sparked outrage in the Muslim world with millions demonstrating across the globe to denounce the desecration of the holy book.

The plan was finally cancelled at the last minute when US officials warned him of the possible consequences.

The Vatican council had also blasted Jones' scheme as an "outrageous and grave gesture."
