(FAITHWIRE) – Apple is complying with the regime in China to remove Quran and Bible apps from its App Store there – the latest effort to suppress religious activity in the communist country.
Apple Censorship reported in a tweet that the apps, Quran Majeed and Bible App by Olive Tree, had been taken down. Chinese officials claim the apps violate laws that prohibit the use of religious text or materials.
A spokesperson from Olive Tree told the Washington Examiner, “We are currently reviewing the requirements to obtain the necessary permit with the hope that we can restore our app to China’s App Store and continue to distribute the Bible worldwide.”
