The Danish government has banned setting the Quran get-off in public after a series of burnings led to chaos in Muslim countries.

Justice Minister Peter Hummelgaard stated such burning hurt Denmark and risked the safety of Danes.

The planned law will make wrong treatment of the Quran or Bible criminal violence punishable by a fine and jail sentence of two years.

Foreign Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen said Denmark had observed 170 demonstrations in the last few weeks, including burning the Quran in front of foreign embassies.

Denmark's PET intelligence service has been aware that the latest incidents have expanded the terrorist threat.

Neighbouring Country Sweden has also seen a series of Quran burning, and its security service has been made aware of a hopeless security situation. In July, the protesters appointed the Swedish embassy in Iraq an alight.

But Denmark and Sweden hesitated to respond to the burning because of their humanistic laws on freedom of expression.
