Muslim students buy out Qurans in protest at US university

LINCOLN, Nebraska: Students from the Pakistan Students Association at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln bought out the entire stock of the copies of the Quran at their university bookstore.
This was reported in the Daily Nebraskan via University WIRE.
The PSA didn't want non-Muslim students to accidentally deface the Quran. PSA president Summayia Khan declined to comment.
The copy of the Quran assigned to the class on religious studies includes an English translation alongside the Arabic version.
Sidnie Crawford, chairwoman of the classics and religious studies department, said the issue was resolved pleasantly.
To offset the book's lack of availability, class instructor assistant professor Simon Wood posted the assigned readings on Blackboard.
He was unavailable for comment.
Students felt it was cheaper to buy their copies online.
