Images from the Book Deemed “Too Obscene” for Malaysia

The Home Ministry has pulled the classic children’s book “Where Did I Come From?” by Peter Mayle off the shelves, pending a decision on whether to ban the book.

UMNO Youth’s Datuk Muhd Khairun Aseh says “the degree of obscenity inside the book was too much”.

The book was published in 2000 (correction, it was first published in 1973), and is already in the homes of many Malaysians, who perhaps have had their “morals harmed”, to use the term used by the Home Ministry’s deputy secretary-general Datuk Abdul Rahim Mohd Radzi.

Here are some sneak peeks into the book. What do you think? Tell us in the comments section.

Here we go.

False expectations?

Every child's worst nightmare.

Too obscene? Worthy of a ban?
