So a lot of people wondered, why the ban?

Twitter user @JasonLSK mocked that the ban happened becaue when Ultraman crosses his arms to attack, his action is mimicking a symbolic shape of a specific religion and this may confuse kids. Well that is a possible threat to public order I guessed.

Is it possible that the power bank which Ultraman bought did not come with a Halal Certification?

Well it appears that a description on the publication of Ultraman The Ultra Power which comes in Malay language has this specific translation which uses a word that starts with A and ends with H. At least that is one of the closest possibility which replies to the question by the Minister of Youth & Sports in Malaysia.

By the way, it’s only Ultraman The Ultra Power which was banned. We still have Ultraman Ace, Ultraman Seven, Ultraman Tiga & more, don’t worry when Godzilla attacks Malaysia on 15 May!
