The ‘Defender of Quran’

This Muslim man stopped an anti-Muslim leader from burning the copy of the Holy Qur’an at a rally in Norway.

In the video, which has since gone viral, the Muslim man, now identified as Ilyas could be seen jumping into the barricaded circle to save the holy book from being desecrated.

For his courage and heroism, Ilyas is now being hailed all over the world, as the ‘Defender of Qur’an’.
