Why would someone go through the trouble of inserting Quranic verses inside floor mats? This is the question on everyone’s minds following the shocking discovery of Quranic verses hidden within the stitching of foot mats imported from Indonesia recently.
The discovery prompted the Malacca Islamic Religious Department (Jaim) to raid a warehouse in Krubong here today. Its enforcement chief, Rahimin Bani said the department seized more than 500 floor mats from the warehouse after receiving complaints.
The case was investigated under Section 63 of the Melaka Sharia Offences Enactment 1991 for insulting Islam and Section 7 of the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984 for undesirable publications.
