The 15-year-old British girl reportedly filmed the act and posted the footage on Facebook.
A teenage girl was arrested Wednesday in the UK on suspicion of inciting religious hatred after she allegedly burned a copy of the Koran. The 15 year old girl filmed the act, and posted the footage on Facebook, reported the Guardian citing police sources.
The 15-year-old was questioned and bailed by investigators last Friday after the incident, which took place at a school in the West Midlands.
Police also arrested a 14-year-old boy on suspicion of making threats on Facebook in connection with the alleged incident. He was released on bail, according to spokeswoman for West Midlands police.
“The local neighborhood team have strong links with the school and have been working closely with key partners from the community and the local authority to resolve the matter locally,” the Guardian quoted the police spokeswoman as saying:
“West Midlands police will investigate and monitor any crime reported by individuals who may have been targeted because of their disability, gender, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation or transgender”

When Pastor Bob burnt a Koran in the US earlier this year, 12.000 Muslims came visiting this blog with comments.
Let me repeat my message.
I feel its wrong to burn the Koran. Everyone should rather read the Koran, and she how Muhammad demands violence from his followers:
There are more than 140 verses in the Koran, than promote Muslim violence against those who refuse to submit to “allah” and his messanger.
This verse is one of those verses.
«The just retribution for those who fight God (Allah) and His messenger (Muhammad), and commit horrendous crimes, is to be killed, or crucified, or to have their hands and feet cut off on alternate sides, or to be banished from the land. This is to humiliate them in this life, then they suffer a far worse retribution in the Hereafter».
