London, Aug. 25 (ANI): An Islamic leader in Britain has warned best selling author Sebastian Faulks of 'severe consequences' for his remarks that Koran is nothing more than "the rantings of a schizophrenic."

The Sun quoted Ajmal Masroor, of the Islamic Society for Britain, as saying that Faulks' comments could encourage hatred against Muslims.

"The consequences of saying things like this could be quite severe."

Faulks, 56, had said that the words of Prophet Mohammed were "one-dimensional", and had criticised the Koran for not telling stories, like the Old Testament.

The author, whose works include James Bond novel Devil May Care, read a translation of the Koran while researching his latest book, A Week In December.

"It's a depressing book, it really is. It's just the rantings of a schizophrenic," he said while speaking in advance of the publication of his novel, 'A Week in December.'

He also found Koran "very disappointing from a literary point of view". (ANI)
