Tech giant Apple has removed Quran Majeed, a popular app for reading and listening to the Quran, from the App Store in China.

The company reportedly removed the app at the request of government officials.

The deletion of the app was first noticed by Apple Censorship – a website that monitors apps on Apple’s App Store globally.

In a statement from the app’s maker Pakistan Data Management Services (PDMS), the company said: “According to Apple, our app Quran Majeed has been removed from the China App Store because it includes content that requires additional documentation from Chinese authorities”.

“We are trying to get in touch with the Cyberspace Administration of China and relevant Chinese authorities to get this issue resolved”.
