    Not sure whether it's legal or not, but I wouldn't say it's freedom of speech/expression because such an action is showing hatred to a certain group of people, so yeah. You are free to express yourself but preferably not in that sort of way.

    Of course it is. It's religious hatred.

    It is probably illegal but the question is will the perpetrator ever see a courtroom? Receive a fine? Er No.

    Burn as many as you want. burn as many bibles Qurans what ever you want burn it.

    Burn 100 burn 1000s and the only bad thing you will be doing is creating a fire hazard.

    It is perfectly legal and morally it is no different from burning a fictional book

    You might get in some trouble if you were burning it to deliberately provoke people. However, apart from that, I'd say go ahead and burn away. It's definitely a book that deserves to be burned as far as I'm concerned.
    It is authentically reported in Sahih Al-Bukhari, under the chapter titled "Compiling the Qur’an", that Uthman ibn Affan (may Allah be pleased with him) ordered four of the best reciters among the Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet) to transcribe several copies of the Mus-haf (manuscript of the Qur’an), which was compiled into one manuscript by the command of Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with them). When they finished Uthman sent a copy of the transcribed Mus-haf to every territory. He also ordered that any other written records of the Qur’an be burnt. None among the Sahabah objected.

    Islamically, the ways to dispose the Quran are:

    ---Burning it
    ---Wrapped in a piece of cloth and buried, or
    ---Disposed of in a flowing river.

    Only retards would burn the quran, because they don't know that it is islamically correct to burn a Quran when to be disposed of. And only illiterate muslims would be distressed by the burning of Quran.
    However, it all lies in the intention of the person. And the intention causes the problem

    It's not haram to burn a copy of the Qur'an to dispose of it once it has become too worn or unusable, etc.

    You're a muppet if you just burn it for no reason, though.

    I would not burn another religion's scripture on purpose, I don't see how it will benefit me and why would I want to disrespect like that. I have to not be in my senses to do that

    Highly ironic that Muslims believe that non-believers will suffer the fire of hell for eternity, but nonetheless believe it is deeply disrespectful to burn a book that has such an abhorrent ideology.

    There will be 2 types of people that will enter heaven on the day of judgement:
    ---Those who are devout muslims
    ---And those who have done good deeds on this earth.

    It is not for me to judge who will enter heaven. But it is clear according to Sahih Hadith that on the day of judgement the muslims will be divided into 73 sects. Yet only 1 of those sects will go to heaven. Clearly ~98% of muslims too will go to hell(well we don't really know the sixes of those sects).
    So yes, even good non-muslims will go to heaven(god willing) and devout muslims. And a lot of muslims will go to hell as well as a lot of non-muslims.

    Muslims also believe that Jews and Christians who correctly followed their books and their prophets(Jesus and Moses) will also go to heaven.

    It seems rather petty to complain about the burning of some book when such evil views are commonly held.

    I think most people arguing for the legality of burning a Quran agree that it will offend some people, myself included. I believe the main argument is, essentially, 'So what? Deal with it'. Freedom of speech and the right to offend are two attributes that I value extremely highly.

    It can sometimes feel to me like religion gets a protective bubble when it comes to offence, which I find rather frustrating.
