Banned Books 2019 – Holy Terror

Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.


This graphic novel by comic book artist Frank Miller concerns an Islamic Terrorist. Muslims in Plano (TX) referred the book to the Dallas/Fort Worth chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR-DFW), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization. The CAIR-DFW director reached out to a representative of the public library. Following this conversation, the library decided to remove the title, stating that “hate propaganda…is inappropriate in a publicly-funded facility.”
