The survey is among the first to assess public opinion since the Danish government announced that it would ban Quran burnings in public.

At least half of Denmark supports a recent government proposal that intends to make Quran burning an illegal act, a survey has revealed.

Some 50.2 percent answered"yes", 35 percent said"no" and 14.8 percent did not know, the pollster found. The government is set to present a bill that will"prohibit the inappropriate treatment of objects of significant religious importance to a religious community," Justice Minister Peter Hummelgaard said last week.
