People across the world are condemning the Dove World Outreach Center for the church’s plans to burn a Koran on 9/11.
On Thursday, Al-Azhar’s Supreme Council in Egypt accused the church of “stirring up hate and discrimination.”
Local Muslims are also outraged at the church’s actions. “Burning not just the Koran but burning holy scripture of any religion is disturbing. People of all faiths should condemn this act,” says Muhammad Mansoori.
The Dove World Outreach Center also angered a lot of people last year, when the church posted the sign, “Islam is of the devil,” in front of the church.
Politicians and religious leaders in the Gainesville area have thrown their support behind local Muslims and against the church.
