Army Memo re:Handling of the Koran the Detention Hospital at Guantanamo

June 14, 2005 | DOA | ACLU-RDI 2431
This memo is to address the sensitivity Muslims have when non-Muslims handle the Koran. It directs hospital personnel not to handle the Koran and to have the Chaplain or Muslim interpreter handle it if necessary. It also instructs personnel not to disrespect the Koran, because this could potentially lead to a lack of cooperation from the detainees and could provoke a violent reaction from the detainee. This is listed as Standard Operating Procedure Order Number: 080
