Via Daily Mail:
A senior member of the British National Party has been arrested for allegedly burning a copy of the Koran in his garage.Oddly enough, Bill Maher seems to be a consistent atheist on this issue. Fast forward to the 2:15 mark.
Sion Owens, a BNP candidate in the forthcoming Welsh Assembly elections, was charged under the Public Order Act.
He was said to have soaked the Islamic holy book in kerosene, set fire to it and watched it burn. Footage was then apparently circulated among extremists.
The alleged act, considered highly offensive to Muslims, comes after dozens died last week in riots fuelled by a similar Koran-burning incident in America.
