Florida Church Forbidden from Burning Quran


Florida authorities have forbidden a church in Gainesville to burn the Quran on the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

If the church burns the Qur'ans it will suffer a financial penalty. This is due to the municipal law in Gainesville, which prohibits the burning of books in public.

However, the church has announced that it plans to burn the books on September 11 in any case.
