According to a report carried by al-Najar newspaper, the North African country’s Awqaf and Religious Affairs Ministry has introduced new guidelines for printing and publishing copies of the Quran.
Based on the newly-introduced guidelines, all the Qurans printed in Algeria should be in Warsh narrated from Naafi style (one of the ten styles of Quran recitation).
Also, permission should be obtained from the ministry before printing Quran copies and religious books or importing them from abroad.
The ministry’s new guidelines also reiterate that imported religious books should not contain any insult to Algerian society, religious figures, and culture.
A special committee will be set up to examine and approve the content of imported books, the report said.
