All religious books on the top shelf in libraries, anyone care to predict the next step?

I read the news that:
"Librarians are being told to move the Bible to the top shelf to avoid giving offence to followers of Islam.

Muslims have complained of finding the Koran on lower shelves, saying it should be put above commonplace things.

So officials have responded with guidance, backed by ministers, that all holy books should be treated equally and go on the top shelf together. "

and one thought immediately came to mind: how long before Muslims are agitating for the Koran to be put on a higher shelf than the Old Tesatment, the New Testament, the Bhagavad Gita, the Vedas, the The Guru Granth, the Tripitaka etc.

This one will run and run.
