37 Banned Books

The Internal Security Ministry recently announced that it has banned 37 books and publications containing twisted facts about Islam, and therefore unsuitable for distribution in Malaysia. Here’s a partial list - which leaves no doubt why they were found to be potentially dangerous to public order.

  • Unveiled At Last: Bob Sjogren (YWAM Publishing, United States)
  • Now You Can Know What Muslims Believe: (Ministries to Muslims, US)
  • Answering Islam The Crescent in Light of the Cross: Norman L Geisler, Abdul Saleeb (Baker Books, US)
  • Islam in Context Past, Present and Future: Peter G. Riddell, Peter Cotterell (Baker Academic, US)
  • Feminism and Islamic Fundamentalism, The Limit of Post-modern Analysis: Haideh Moghissi (Zed Books Ltd, UK)
