An Afghan woman was beaten to death and her body was set on fire by a mob in Kabul for allegedly burning a copy of Holy Quran. This incident happened in Shahi Doshamshira neighbourhood. Body of woman was then thrown in Kabul river. Similar incident took place in November 2014, in Pakistan, when mob beat a Christian couple and burnt their bodies for allegedly desecrating The Holy Quran. In 2012, the revelation that copies of Holy Qran had been burnt in US-run Bagram prison sparked five days of violent anti-US riots and attacks across the country that killed 30 people.
