The Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI), which oversees the NLB, has asked it to review its procedures after a report in The New Paper yesterday.
A ministry spokesman said MCI agreed with NLB’s decision to pull the books from its shelves, and said it has asked NLB to review its vetting process for potentially divisive and sensitive materials.
“As a multi-cultural and multi-racial society, we do not condone materials that denigrate any racial or religious groups, or which promote intolerance or violence,” the spokesman said.
“The cultural and racial harmony that our people enjoy today has taken us generations to build.
“This must not be taken for granted.
“We thank the member of public and The New Paper for raising this particular series to our attention.”
