Lulu's BREAKFAST Lunch Dinner Series 17

Footnote taken from The Trouble With Malaysia, a Brian Yap essay from the book New Malaysian Essays 1

In 2006, Amir Muhammad's Lelaki Komunis Terakhir, despite bring approved by the censorship board, was banned by the Ministry of Home Affairs.
The reason cited was that 'the public had protested'.
But the public hadn't, actually.
