    BNP candidate Sion Owens faces 'Koran burn' charge

    BBC News - BNP candidate Sion Owens faces 'Koran burn' charge

    A BNP candidate for next month's Welsh assembly elections has been charged with a public order offence, after police were passed a video appearing to show him burning a copy of the Koran.
    Sion Owens, 41, was named as a party candidate for the South Wales West regional list last week.
    He is due to appear at Swansea magistrates' court on Monday.
    A second BNP election candidate has been arrested in connection with the incident, and released on bail.
    A BNP spokesperson said both would still be candidates in the assembly election on 5 May.
    On Friday, police were given a video which appeared to show Mr Owens dousing a copy of the Koran with a highly flammable fluid, before setting it alight and watching it burn.
    This kind of stinks to me interfering in Politics and Religion, flag burning appears to go unpunished in the UK so why is a religious book any different.

    Because they don't want to offend the Muslims. If it was a bible people would be cheering in the street.
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
