KUALA LUMPUR: The Home Ministry has banned Ultraman The Ultra Power book which was found to contain elements that may be detrimental to public order.
The book in the Malay language was published by Resign Publications and printed by Network Printers.
A photo circulated on Facebook allegedly shows an extract of the publication, which contains a reference to Ultraman compared to “Allah or all the Elders of Ultra heroes”.
A ministry statement said the prohibition gazette, effective Feb 18, was made under Section 7(1) of the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984.
“It is an offence under subsection 2 of Section 8 of the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984 for any person to print, import, produce, reproduce, publish, sell, distribute or possess the prohibited publication for any purpose.”
The statement added that those convicted of such an offence would be liable to a jail term not exceeding three years or a fine not exceeding RM20,000 or both. — Bernama
