A leading bookstore in Kuala Lumpur has stopped selling a book written by Farish Noor, pending an investigation by the Home Ministry. The entire stock of the book, From Majapahit to Putrajaya, was confiscated from Kinokuniya’s KLCC outlet on 15 Aug 2008 by officers from the ministry’s Selangor office in a regular annual inspection. Other book titles, mostly on religion, were also seized. The Nut Graph has the report.
