Prince Mishaal bin Abdullah, governor of Makkah province, has ordered the confiscation of “perverted” copies of the Qur’an that are being sold in some malls and markets in Jeddah.

The governor has ordered the formation of a team to investigate and find out the origin of such fake copies and how they are being distributed, said the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

The team is to be composed of representatives of the district police; the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Endowments, Call and Guidance Branch; the Ministry of Trade and Industry; and the Ministry of Culture and Information.

Prince Mishaal’s directive was prompted by information reaching his office that reading materials lifted from the Qur’an, including distortions of the holy book, were being distributed or sold in a number of centers and commercial markets at attractive prices and coated with a variety of colors.

Some of the materials produced have been acquired without verifying the source, SPA said.
