The highly deplorable act of desecration of Holy Quran by the American so-called pastor Terry Jones in Florida has posed a big question for the international community propagating tolerance and interfaith peace. The US government should have employed the state apparatus to prevent this incident in the first place. Even now, more than a week after this unfortunate incident, the US government has done nothing except issuing statements condemning this act. It's high time that Muslims all over the world got up from their deep slumber to resist the aggressive crusades of the West against Islam. Muslims should urge the US government to give exemplary punishment to individuals involved in this sacrilegious act so that such happenings can be prevented in future. AREEJ RIAZ, Karachi, April 2.
