As much as I hate that, I am a far bigger fan of liberty, and liberty means the right say and do things people do not like. Yes burning books is your right, and no one may claim to embrace liberty and advocate for punishing people for free expression. Would this include burning a Koran? Not just yes, but hell yes! In short, Sharia Law which is evil, barbaric, and utterly incompatible with Western values must never be allowed to hold any sway in a free nation. Punishing people for burning a book, even a holy book is is antithetical to liberty
Expressing your rejection of a certain barbaric ideology by burning the Koran can get you in big trouble in places like Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Britain:
Police have arrested two people on suspicion of racial hatred after a video appeared online showing a man burning a copy of the Koran.
Unlike Nazism, Islam has nothing to do with race. If you burn Mein Kampf, will you get thrown in jail for racism? Of course not, because “racism” doesn’t have much to do with race either. It means “anything liberals don’t like.” They definitely do not like it when people fail to join them in obsequiously kowtowing before Islam.
Detectives said a 45-year-old man from Worcestershire was arrested on suspicion of posting videos or images likely to cause racial hatred and a 45-year-old woman from Evesham has also been arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred.
Basically what the UK, and other nations have done is begin the process of surrendering Western values, you know free speech, self-defense, treating women like people, not stoning Gay people, to the Barbarism enforced under Sharia Law. Instead of expecting Muslim immigrants to embrace Western values, and assimilate, Europe has decided to change the values of the West to appease those immigrants. Such actions will lead, eventually, to the extinction of liberty and those values the West has long embraced. Such an end is far more offensive than burning a book is it not?
