Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin told the press on Thursday that the Government views the banning of the “Belt & Road Initiative For Win-Winism” comic book seriously and will confiscate any copies in circulation.

He also said the decision to ban the comic is not due to any sentiments or actions against any parties.

The ministry said in a statement on Wednesday that the publication was found to have content that could "endanger public order and security" and also "distort the mind of the public".
