15 Years after the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) passed away, Caliph Uthman ordered that all Quran copies to be burnt.
Well, that aimed to give respect to the Quran. Definitely, it was not a sort of Terry-Jones action.
There is a story behind this decision. In the west, It is an insult to burn a religious symbol . That is different from what Uthman (May Allah be pleased with him) did.
