Question

I live in the UK. The bars here are called "makka "and have nude pictures of women with the Qur'an. Is it permissible for me to break their windows? For your information I broke 20 windows for this reason and the police wants to catch me but Allah protect me.

Answer

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the World; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

No doubt calling bars "Makkah" is a great evil and a repulsive act, likewise using nude pictures with the Qur'an.
Therefore, one should change this evil to the extent of his ability. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: "He who amongst you sees something abominable should modify it with the help of his hand; and if he has not strength enough to do it, then he should do it with his tongue, and if he has not strength enough to do it, (even) then he should (abhor it) from his heart, and that is the least of faith" [Reported by Imam Muslim ].
Whoever is capable to change this evil with his hand he should do so; if doing so causes any common or particular harm then he should change it with his tongue, i.e. to demand the concerned authorities to change it; if one cannot do this then at least he should detest it from his heart and it is Allah Alone whose help can be sought.
As for reciting beginning of Surah Yasin to avoid an enemy it is mentioned in the biography of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) in the story of his migration to Medina.
Allah knows best.
