Days after the boldness of the courageous Ilyas, who got fame as the ‘defender of Quran’ the Norway’s Muslim Association announced to distribute 10,000 Qurans with Norwegian translations.

Norwegian Muslim Arts and Culture Association reported that the step is being taken to in an effort to fight racism and hate in the country.

It will be a collaboration with the Islam Literature Association and the Minhaj-ul-Quran mosque.

Muslim Arts and Culture Association said in a statement that, “We want to respond to negative actions by spreading love and knowledge as taught by the Holy Quran,”

Stop the Islamization of Norway (SION) members were prevented from the desecrating by police, however, the group’s leader threw the Quran in the garbage.

Desecration of the holy Quran in the largely Muslim-populated area of Kristiansand by a Norwegian far-right group sparked outrage and condemnation by Muslim nations.

Ilyas became the social media sensation, after he saved the Holy Quran from burning that was being torched by the leader of the anti-Islam protest.

His effort won millions of hearts, and world regarded him as the hero and one of the greatest defenders of Islam in modern times.

‘Stop Islamization of Norway’ (SIAN) protest took a violent turn after the group’s leader Lars Thorsen tried to burn a copy of the holy Quran, leading to a brawl between the leader and the counter-protesters.

In a video that has surfaced online, Thorsen is seen flicking the book aside, when a man approaches him aggressively, grabs him and tries to kick him. It is when the police intervened to stop the brawl.

Turkey, Pakistan, Iran reacted strongly to the Nov. 16 incident by issuing their formal condemnations.

Earlier, in his weekly news briefing in Islamabad, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr. Muhammad Faisal said the Muslims respect other religions and they expect the followers of other religions to also respect their religious sentiments.
