Allegedly she is from France wallahu alim. When told that she was going to be arrested, she fainted. Her lips look dry, she might be dehydrated. It is very hot in the Gulf right now. Click the photos to enlarge them. 16 July 2013 update: According to a report on Oman Coast, the woman was laughing and crying at the same time which suggests that she may be possessed and/or mentally unstable wallahu alim. If true, shame on the two Omani men for advising her to do such an atrocious thing as rubbing the Qur’an on her feet to relieve pain. That is absolutely NOT the way to utilize the Qur’an for ar-ruqyah ash-shar’iyah subhanAllah.

Muscat: A European woman was arrested on Sunday in Sohar for desecrating the Quran, according to sources at the Royal Oman Police (ROP).
The accused tore pages from the holy book, the sources said. “She then rubbed these torn pages on her feet,” a witness said.
A resident near Al Hamadah Mosque in Sohar, about 231km north of Muscat, saw her desecrating the Quran. “The resident alerted police and officers from the Sohar police station who went to the spot and arrested the accused,” a source at the ROP confirmed.
The woman is detained pending further investigations.
A source said that this was the first time an expatriate had indulged in such a despicable act and to make it worse her act had come during Ramadan.
Neither her identity nor her nationality was made public.
