Pastor Bob Old of the Disciples of Christ church in Springfield, Tennessee, USA, who burned copies of the Quran on September 11th, was rumoured to have died a week after the Quran desecration, having been said to have burned to death in a car accident, a story that turned out to have been a hoax.
Some local news networks however ran with the story, such as Inilah.com, which featured the reaction of a senior member of the Justice Party/Partai Keadilan Sejahtera (PKS) to the fake news, Quran Burning Pastor Dead, Cleric Thanks God inilah
Jazuli Juwaini, a member of the PKS's governing council (Majelis Syuro), said of the news:
Glory to God, that's a just punishment for burning the Quran, that's God's answer to him [Bob Old]
The bloodthirsty Jazuli went on:
This is not just a lesson for those who want to burn the Quran, but also for Muslims themselves, it teaches that the Quran is holy and there can be no doubting it.
