Irshad's book, which was translated into the Malay language, had been forwarded to the Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) to be studied.
"This is because the book, which is believed to have elements that can deviate Muslims from their faith and which insulted Islam, has received numerous complaints," he said in a statement here Thursday.
It's informative to see that advocating a softer, peaceful version of Islam is akin to insulting Islam. Anyway, the banning of the book is not a surprise:
On July 30, 2009, her previous book, entitled The Trouble With Islam Today, was also banned in Malaysia.
