The Congress of Georgian Azerbaijanis (CGA) protested against burning the holy book of Muslims - the quran in the U.S.
The statement made by CGA says that the Georgian Azerbaijanis consider burning the Koran in the U.S. inhuman action and call on all world religions to protest against such insults.

According to international media, pages from a Holy Quran were torn on Sept. 11 in front of the White House during a protest against Islam by a small group of people including a leader of the Tea Party movement. Pages were not burned because the protestor explained that the burning of any object in front of the White House is a serious crime.

Meanwhile, Pastor Bob Old, together with his assistant, did burn the Holy Quran in Tennessee. Besides the Holy Quran, these men burned another book which mentioned the name of the prophet of Islam.
