After Lina Joy has been denied the right to convert from Islam to Christianity, and has been transferred to a Sharia tribunal -with the huge joy of the extremers and the result, as Ms.Song pointed to me in comments’ section: “she has been disowned by her family and cannot marry her fiance, a Christian because Syariah laws make it compulsory for him to convert to Islam” -, now Malaysia is going against freedom of expression –not surprisingly-:
Malaysia has banned 37 books and other publications on Islam, saying they contain “twisted facts” that could undermine Muslims’ faith.
Che Din Yusoh, a senior official of the Publications and Quranic Texts Control Division, said in a statement Wednesday that 21 of the items were English-language publications from the US, UK and Jordan, and 16 others were in the Bahasa Malaysia language, published in Malaysia and Indonesia.

Why don’t they publish books confronting those theories that could undermine Muslims’ faith? Why don’t they use reason for once?
And I keep questioning: Where is the international community? Who is critisizing Malaysia for this?. I have read critics towards Poland because of an article pro-Israel Pilar Rahola wrote in which she maintains the idea that Poland was one of the main supporters of Holocaust. Polish Prosecutors have called for judicial measures against Spanish newspaper El Pais, which was the one who published it. Even if that criticism is justified, when is the international community going to condemn an Islamic country for having a much more fierce censorship? when are those same MSM who are all day critisizing Polang to critisize also Islamic repression?
