I read today with great concern, the news, Florida pastor Terry Jones burns copies of Koran outside church. He is once again spoiling the atmosphere of peace and tranquility in our beloved country, USA.
I challenge him or any Christian scholar in USA or else where to debate with me about collection, compilation, and preservation of the Holy Quran versus the Holy Bible.
Debate will take the form of written articles of certain length to be published in national magazines with a certain frequency. Details to be negotiated. I would hope other students of Islam and Christianity with sufficient proficiency will follow this lead.
This would be a much more productive way of showing to the public, the excellences of our respective scriptures, rather than burning books. Because, ‘Where books are burned, they will ultimately burn people also!’
