Saudi authorities have seized faulty copies of the holy Koran printed outside the Gulf Kingdom and distributed by a local publishing company, the London-based Saudi Arabic language daily Al-Hayat reported on Monday.
The King Fahd Koran Printing Complex detected the faulty copies and informed the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, which quickly imposed a ban on their distribution.
“The Ministry banned the distribution of these faulty Koran books and the entry of such copies, which were printed outside,” the paper said, adding that some verses in those copies are missing while others are repeated.
The paper quoted a Ministry spokesman as saying the faulty copies had been brought into the Kingdom illegally since the import of any Koran copies from outside is not allowed in line with a Ministry decision.
“We stopped the import of Koran books printed outside because many of them contain mistakes…we have already told all mosques to make sure not to allow any foreign Koran copies…in case such copies are found at mosques, we will gather them and burn them,” said the spokesman, Nassir Al Badran.
NOTE: How soon before the Joooos are blamed?
