Published on: Friday, December 29, 2017

PETALING JAYA: The Home Ministry has banned a book written by lawyer and DAP politician Datuk Zaid Ibrahim.

A Federal Government gazette published on Dec 19 said the book, Assalamualaikum (Peace Be Upon You): Observations on the Islamisation of Malaysia, was prohibited.

The order, issued in accor­dance with the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984, was signed by the Home Minister on Dec 4.

The order, which listed Zaid as the author and ZI Publications Sdn Bhd as the publisher, said the book was likely to be prejudicial to public order as well as public interest and is likely to alarm public opinion.

A review of the book published two years ago said it explores the nature of political Islamisation, its origins, its chief personalities, how it has grown and what it means for Malaysia.
