…”desecrated” by, you guessed it, a Muslim:
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) – A Muslim Virginia Tech student says he was the person who left a burned Quran at a local mosque last month, saying it had been damaged in a fire and he hoped it could be given a respectful disposal.
Police initially had said the case was being investigated as an anti-Muslim hate crime.
The student contacted police last week, saying he was going to be traveling abroad and didn’t know what to do with the Quran, which had been burned in a 2004 house fire, police Lt. Bruce Bradberry said Tuesday. The student said he placed the book and other fire-damaged materials in a bag and left the bag at the Islamic Center with a note, which apparently blew away.
One Muslim student pontificated that the incident “was certainly very symbolic.”
