NATO troops in Afghanistan trained to respect Quran

Islamabad, Fri, 09 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 9 (ANI): The US-led NATO troops in Afghanistan are reportedly being trained on how to respect the Muslim holy book, Quran.

 

"It's probably a little too simplistic to suggest that it's a simple matter of do's and don'ts," The Los Angeles Times quoted Lt. Col. George Robinson, a senior officer in the Marine Corps' language and culture training programs, as saying.

 

"It's more a matter of why is the Quran an important," he added.

 

The training aims to prevent any desecration of the Muslim holy book by foreign troops in Afghanistan.

 

Under the training, soldiers are advised not to throw the Quran, and to be cautious when dealing with Arabic texts, assuming "material is sacred if there is any doubt over its religious significance." (ANI)
