Two Qurans set on fire in front of Islamic mosque in Dearborn

DEARBORN, Mich. (WXYZ) - Two Qurans were set on fire in front of an Islamic mosque in Dearborn. 

The Imam, Sheikh Husham Al-Husainy, showed the charred Qurans to 7 Action News Reporter Jim Kiertzner and calls it a hateful act. 

It happened just days before the controversial Pastor Terry Jones and a motorcycle group called American Patriotic Bikers plan to visit another Mosque on Flag Day for what they call a protest against Sharia Law. 

Jones has burned a Quran in his church in Florida and has been to Dearborn before. 

The burning this week happened on Warren in a quiet part of Dearborn. 

Only one business has a surveillance camera and the burning was out of camera range. 

No one witnessed it.
