Violence in JK
Srinagar, Sep 13: Following a rumour that the Quran had been desecrated in the US, violent mob burnt a Christian Christian missionary school in north Kashmir's Tangmarg town on Sep 13.

In the Valley, where curfew was imposed for the second consecutive day in major towns on Sep 13, 14 people were killed in the fallout of the protests and several people were injured.

Violence also spreaded in Punjab's Muslim majority Malerkotla town where the property of a church was set on fire by a mob following the same rumours that the Quran has been burnt in US.

State Chief Secretary S S Kapur said, "We appeal to the people not to heed unverified reports about the alleged desecration of the Holy Quran which have only been aired by Press TV and no other television news channel in the world."
