Nik Raina and the Borders saga by ASYRAF RASID

The tussle between the Federal Territory Islamic Affairs Department (Jawi) and Borders bookstore manager Nik Raina Nik Abdul Aziz is finally over after Jawi withdrew the charge against her for the sale of a banned book.

Jawi agreed to withdraw its charge just before the one-week deadline expires after Nik Raina's lawyers sent a notice to Jawi threatening to initiate contempt proceedings if it did not drop the prosecution.
