Malaysian authorities on Tuesday ordered bookstores to stop selling a classic children's sex education book by a British author, local media reported on Wednesday.
Malaysia's Home Ministry ordered a temporary halt to the sales of Peter Mayle's illustrated book "Where Did I Come From?" to study if the content could harm the community's "moral." The educational book was first published in 1984 and describes the reproductive process from intercourse to birth.
"If the contents are found to have elements that could harm the moral of the community, we would ban it," the ministry's deputy secretary-general Datuk Abdul Rahim Mohd Radzi said, as quoted by the Malaysian Insider.
