The UP government on Tuesday banned two books for publishing some objectionable comments against Prophet Mohammad.
According to an official release, the Prophet has been compared with Scottish writer Thomas Carlyle in two books -- `Carlyle the hero and poet' and `K K digest English Literature prose' prescribed for MA (previous) students.
Since the objectionable comments on the Prophet in the books have hurt the sentiments of Muslims, therefore the government had sought opinion of DGP and law department on these two books.
The DGP recommended a ban on both the books and the law department also made a similar recommendation and suggested that action should be taken under provisions of Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC). Following the recommendations, the government issued an order on Tuesday banning the two books with immediate effect, the release added.
