LONDON - The Association of Pakistani Lawyers, a team of Pakistani origin lawyers, solicitors, barristers, and judges in UK has condemned the burning of the Holy Quran by an American priest Terry Jones and his team in a small Florida church after holding a unilateral non-State malicious and provocative trial of the Muslim holy book. APL Chairman Barrister Amjad Malik while condemning the burning demanded action from US President on the premise that burning the Holy Quran will hurt billions of human souls around the world and US administration must own the responsibility and come upto the task at hand as required, which they failed. Amjad Malik while talking to The Nation said that those who desire to defile and desecrate the religious scriptures to go one step further and read those holy books instead of burning them as for centuries that book is a source of inspiration, guidance and welfare for the mankind and it gives the true message of tolerance, social welfare and rights and responsibilities of individuals and communities in any society.
