Latest Pakistan News / Karachi – Seeking to avoid new desecrations of the Noble Quran, the US-led NATO troops in Afghanistan are being trained on how to respect the Muslim holy book, according to the American newspaper.
“It’s probably a little too simplistic to suggest that it’s a simple matter of do’s and don’ts,” Lt. Col. George Robinson, a senior officer in the Marine Corps’ language and culture training programs, told the Los Angeles Times on Thursday.
“It’s more a matter of why is the Quran an important.”
A new training program was launched last week for the US-led NATO troops in Afghanistan on how to respect the Noble Quran.
The refresher training aims to prevent any desecration of the Muslim holy book by foreign troops in the Asian Muslim country.
Under the training, soldiers are advised not to throw the Muslim holy book.
It also asks soldiers to be cautious when dealing with Arabic texts, assuming “material is sacred if there is any doubt over its religious significance.” (Monitoring Desk)
