1UN worried by Koran burning plan .
2The United Nations on Wednesday expressed concern at plans by a fringe Florida church to burn copies of the Islamic holy book on the anniversary of the September 11 , 2001 attacks .
3`` The proposed actions contradict the efforts of the United Nations and many people to promote tolerance , intercultural understanding and mutual respect between cultures and religions , '' said a UN spokesman Farhan Haq .
4`` Indeed they can only led to further discord and polarization between communities , '' Haq told reporters .
5The Dove World Outreach Center has said it will burn the Korans as a warning to radical Islam , ignoring appeals by US authorities and condemnation by governments around the world .
6`` We certainly hope that it will not take place , '' Haq said .
