“Koran Allegation May Long Resonate,” from the Washington Post, with thanks to John Pardon:
“The damage cannot be controlled by the belated retraction from Newsweek under U.S. government pressure,” said Qazi Hussain Ahmad, leader of the major Islamic party alliance in Pakistan, who spoke by telephone from Islamabad. “The desecration of the Holy Koran by U.S. soldiers shows that the United States is on a path of clashing with Islam.”
Ahmad said that his alliance, the Muttahida Majlis Amal, was planning nationwide protests May 27 and that it had “coordinated with Islamic organizations all over the world to join us in this day of condemnation.”
Here’s some interesting background on Qazi Hussain Ahmed.
