International Cat Speculators Since 2006

Now that’s a commitment… to something

Oh my goodness!

The government’s Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs has banned a book co-authored by former attorney general and presidential candidate Dr Hassan Saeed, Freedom Of Religion, Apostasy and Islam, on the grounds that it “violates Islamic principles”.

It is the first time the Council has banned a specific title since a short-lived bar on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 2005, which was retracted a week later.

You read that right: the Maldives tried to ban the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

How screwed up is that!
