Here's what allegedly happened:
- Someone from the Economic Department came in to Kinokuniya and told them to remove it from the shelves which they did. For a while they continued selling it on request but then stopped altogether while they investigated the matter.
- Upon contacting the National Media Council, they were informed that the book is fine and no longer suspect. This may (or may not) have something to do with the media interest around the topic.
- Things are a bit confusing as some stores (Borders for example) have been telling customers that the book is banned. As it's currently out of stock in most places, it's difficult to find out.
- Jashanmal should be receiving more copies of the book in about 10-14 days. Kinokuniya should be receiving them slightly later.
Let's see what happens when the book is back in stock. Fingers crossed!
