A book is paper, its words penned in ink. It is no more and no less holy as a form than any other.
Reverence is paid to the source of wisdom and knowledge that is communicated through a holy book to the heart and mind of the reader.

Neither Mohammed, nor Allah, nor the faith of a Muslim is diminished by the blashemous act of a non-Muslim. Allah is more than any form, including the Qu'ran. Reverence is reserved for the One, and mercy towards those who need it is the best response.
