Man arrested in Czech raids on Islamic centers, suspected of publishing 'racist' book

Czech police say they have arrested a man for publishing an Islamic book that allegedly promotes racism and violence.
In a Saturday statement, Hantak said the suspect organized the book's translation, publication, distribution and sale.
He said the book allegedly spreads racism, anti-Semitism, xenophobia and violence against "inferior races." Police and the state prosecution declined to give the book's name, saying they don't want to promote it by naming it.
Local Muslims protested that the raids took place during prayers on Friday, which is a holy day for them.
