From The People's Daily, June 1971
Seized Eighteen thousand copies of a new novel by A.E. Vithano, Professor of Philosophy and English Literature at White University, by customs officials in Malaysia. According to a spokesman for the government, Gentle Beast was seized because "its writer's ideas would have offended the sensibilities of religious people in the country." Other Islamic countries are expected to follow suit in banning the novel.
