Protesters mostly supports of Pashtun Taliban, shout anti-U.S. slogans during a protest in Kabul February 24, 2012. Twelve people were killed on Friday in the bloodiest day yet in protests that have raged across Afghanistan over the desecration of copies of the Muslim holy book at a NATO military base with riot police and soldiers on high alert braced for more violence.

Thousands of Muslims around the world have taken to the streets to protest against threats by an obscure pastor in the United States to burn copies of the Quran on the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the US.

Demonstrations have erupted in countries including Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Indonesia and the Palestinian territories, despite the church in question saying it would not go ahead with the plan.

In Afghanistan, at least one person was reported to have been killed in clashes with security forces as an angry crowd attacked a NATO base in the northern province of Badakshan.

In the past years, thousands of armed Taliban Kuchi attacked Behsud and killed tens of innocent people. During their attack, they have burnt down schools, mosques and even copies of Quran. But not a single Muslim protested against the barbaric act of the Kuchis. Is this because everyone is scared of Taliban kuchis? Or the Behsud Quran was not a “Quran”?

    Its ok for muslim Taliban to burn Quran but its crime for others to burn it. Its also ok for Taliban to kill innocent Hazaras.

    @ Zahra Taher, i am 100% agree with u…unless we join our hands together…unless we learn to see in the eyes of our enemies….unless we unite our energy to focus on
    the greater HAZARAGI cause….it w’d be impossible for us to defeat our enemies…
    I invite all of u my brothers and sisters to make a “HAZARA YOUTH FORUM” use ur PCs go through the Facebook, Twitter etc,send ur voice to the international community…believe me most of them don’t know anything about the plight of hazara people living in Afghanistan,appeal them to send ur voice to their Parliamentarians/Senators…”THIS IS THE WAR OF SURVIVAL” after this, Hazaras either would have a better life enjoying equal rights as the others or God forbidden…………..

    The Behsud Quran was Quran, the reason of burning Quran in Behsud was only that because it was possessed by Hazaras. Hazaras have no friend in World especially in Afghanistan. I appeal Hazaras to unite and learn lesson from History or be ready for ruin. Noyan Hazara, Pakistan
