I am pretty late on this thread.
As a Hindu, I must tell you, these things never happen in India and so I was really surprised to see some Hindu claiming folks burning Koran and Bible. Hindu's will never indulge in any acts which will dishonor other religions. We earn respect by respecting others. We can always argue about whats right whats not, but burning religious books is no way to make an argument.
I highly disregard and condemn those acts. Probably those guys had some other motives ( maybe they want to go to Swiss Jail instead of going back to India.
