Pyongyang, May 22 (KCNA) — American soldiers flushed holy Korans down toilets in a bid to wrest concessions from prisoners at the Guantanamo POW Camp. In this regard Minju Joson Sunday in a signed commentary terms this a direct product of the U.S. policy of abusing human rights.
Nothing is more intolerable insult to the personality of the Muslims and more unbearable encroachment upon their human rights than this profanation of their holy Korans, the commentary notes, and observes:
Religious freedom is an elementary right granted to a human being.
Under the pretext of “anti-terrorism” the United States arrested and imprisoned Muslims en masse and has inflicted all descriptions of mental and physical sufferings upon them. It has committed unheard-of inhuman criminal acts which stun the world as evidenced by what happened at the Abu Ghraib prison.
As noted in a report released by the U.S. State Department some days ago, the number of the cases of abuses of prisoners by the U.S. forces in Iraq reached 190. This shows that the U.S. is harboring extreme antipathy towards the Muslims.
This is the practice of the U.S. which advocates human rights, while talking about the “religious freedom.” The U.S. has no right to talk about
human rights as it abhors Islam merely because it differs from its own religion and pursues national chauvinism.
