Soaking the holy book

Spotted yesterday in the River Lea by Tottenham Marshes:

Qur'an in the River Lea?

The text is clearly Arabic, and, given the typographical style and ornamentation, my best guess is that these pages were taken from a copy of the Muslim holy book, the Qur’an. If so, who could have committed this sacrilegious act?

As I sat on the bank pondering this question along with a pair of swan lovers who snorted derisively at the spectacle while nibbling at the paper, I imagined a follower of Mohammed who has now seen the light, and decided to cast off the shackles of his former religion.
