“There are objective scientific rules that should be taken into consideration on printing the copies of the holy Quran, even its font should be in compliance with Sharia (Islamic law),” he explained.
“There are copies of the Holy Quran, whose pages are written with certain colors and they too should also be banned. Provisions of Islamic Sharia stipulate that copied publications of the holy Quran should be respected,” Rushdi added.
