However, “we need to be careful on reference source obtained as it needs to be filtered for its authenticity. Therefore, it is indeed for the Islamic Da’wah Centre (PDI) through the

Censorship and Exhibition Division organised the workshop as part of the effort to expand knowledge on Rasm Uthmani writings and improve skills for PDI officers”.

This was said by PDI Director Haji Abdul Rajid bin Haji Mohd Salleh during the closing ceremony of a workshop, ‘Bengkel Pendedahan Kaedah Rasm Uthmani dan Pengadaptasiannya di dalam Pentashihan/Penapisan Al-Quran dan Seumpamanya’, at Ta’lim Hall of the Religious Teachers University College of Seri Begawan.
