About three years ago I was part of an excursion organised by my school. While we were traveling in the bus, I noticed a small booklet(the content of which was printed in Urdu) lying underneath the seat. I assumed it was be some sort of a prayer book. I showed it to my friends sitting next to me. One of them snatched it from my hand threw the booklet on the floor and started trampling it. Soon others followed. I just stood there and watched them tear the book apart. But when I think of it now I feel guilty that I had done nothing to prevent them. Apart from the fact that it is morally a wrong thing to desecrate other religions, my question is: Is it a sin?

While I appreciate the earnestness of your question, generally we consider questions of the form "is x a sin" to be non-constructive. –  wax eagle May 28 '13 at 19:22
If Truth Questions of "Is x is a sin" is bad form here, consider rewording to a History Question next time: "How has the bible and writings of church fathers been used to argue against X?" –  pterandon May 29 '13 at 11:16
