Dr M: Burning of religious texts allowed in specific instances


KUALA LUMPUR: The burning of religious texts, including the Al-Quran and the Bible, is allowed in specific instances, but not with bad intentions, said former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (pic).

When asked his opinion if Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali's Bible-burning call was seditious, Dr Mahathir said Muslims often burnt old and worn copies of the Al-Quran, but were forbidden from throwing it around or stepping on it.
