(hennemusic) Jimi Hendrix's album classic, "Axis: Bold as Love", has been banned in Malayasia 47 years after its release based on its cover, which features and the guitar icon and his bandmates as various forms of Lord Vishnu.

Themalaymailonline reports an unidentified spokesman from the Home Ministry's Publication Control and Quranic Text unit said compact discs with the 1967 album cover art featuring the Hindu deity would be prohibited from entering the country and they would seize such CDs found in Malaysia.

"We don't care if Jimi Hendrix albums without cover art featuring Lord Vishnu come in, but if it uses Lord Vishnu's image, then of course we won't allow it," said the official. "We'll definitely take action against anything that violates religious sensitivities, whether it's Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism or Islam. We must respect each other." more on this story
