The US embassy in Islamabad released a statement quoting that they protest Florida church`s Koran-Burning Rally on the anniversary of 9/11.
 
Stephen C Engelken, the charge d`affaires said, "We condemn acts that are disrespectful, intolerant and divisive. We are deeply concerned about all deliberate attempts to offend members of any religious or ethnic group.”
 
"We believe firmly in freedom of religion and freedom of expression; they are universal rights, enshrined in the US Constitution and in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”
 
“We reaffirm our position that the deliberate destruction of any holy book is an abhorrent act," he said.
