For example the US preacher who threatened to burn the Qur'an that caused a major controversy

Book burning nut cases are irritating but if a person buys a book and decides to burn it or throw a book burning party it is his choice and it is an art of freedom of expression. People may disagree with "book burning" for various reasons but it is up to the owner of the object to do as he or she pleases.The fact that such an act can cause terrorism,murder and riots is pure insanity but it has happened.The proposed blasphemy laws clearly show support for such insanity.
