Withdraw previous editions of Taslima's book: Muslim body

November 30, 2007 22:36 IST

A prominent Muslim body on Friday asked the government to ensure the withdrawal of previous editions of a book by Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen's [Images], after the writer decided to delete objectionable portions from it.

In a cautious response, the All India Muslim Personnel Law Board wondered what will be done with the books already in circulation and asked the government to ensure that they are withdrawn from the market.

"The first question is that of those books which are already available in the market. Those should be withdrawn. She has only said that the coming editions will not contain those controversial lines," AIMPLB spokesman S Q R Ilyas said.
