French woman, two Omanis held for Quran desecration in Sohar

 Shocking and surreal photo. French woman rubbing the Holy Quran on her feet
 during Ramadan in Sohar, Oman.

A French woman was arrested yesterday for desecrating the Holy Quran at Al Yahmadi mosque in Hambar area of the wilayat of Sohar.

After tearing the pages from the Holy Quran, the woman rubbed them on her foot. Sources said the woman’s foot was paining and she was advised by two citizens to rub the Holy Quran pages for one hour for relief. One of the citizens took some snaps of her while she was rubbing the Holy Quran on her foot.

Rather than blaming the French women, residents have accused the two citizens for their ‘mischief’. They were arrested for their act during the Holy Month of Ramadan. The investigation by Sohar police yesterday revealed that the French woman was suffering from some psychological disorder. She was crying and laughing at the same time during interrogation.

She also went to one of the exchange houses in Sohar on Saturday for sending OMR1 to her country. Meanwhile, the residents of Hambar area have denounced the incident in the Holy Month.  The woman and the two citizens are in custody for further investigation.

The woman refused to talk to the police and insisted the presence of a lawyer during interrogation. The French woman will be taken to one of the mental hospitals to make sure weather she is mentally sound or not.
