Why is quran package installed by default on Texlive2020

At the end of all this, perhaps a better question would be "why not 
include ...?" - as far as I can see, the ability to typeset religious 
texts in a particular format is nothing more than a passive ability; it 
sets there, if you want to use it, but it doesn't affect anything if you 
don't. The only concern might be too much clutter in your filesystem, 
but considering the amount of other stuff I have lying around 'just 
because', it is hardly a major issue.

I think, although it hasn't been mentioned explicitly, that this is more 
about someone having a grudge against, in this case, Islam. A small 
century ago it was Judaism - haven't come far enough to lay this sort of 
prejudice to rest, finally?
