Denmark votes to ban burning of holy scriptures

RELIGIONS NEWS AGENCY (REDNA)- The Danish parliament has voted to ban the burning of religious scriptures after a number of such incidents in Denmark and Sweden sparked international protests.

The Guardian reports that a bill making it illegal to burn, soil, trample on or cut recognised religious scriptures including the Qur’an, the Bible or the Torah was passed with 94 votes in favour and 77 against. The argument was that desecrating scriptures risks the security of Danes at home and abroad.
