He managed to get it back, but only after he had leaked the story to The Guardian and the New York Times. Living in Rome in the mids, Burgess decided to translate the obscene and blasphemous sonnets of the 19th-century Roman dialect poet Belli, who had worked as a Vatican censor by day and secretly written more than offensive poems, unpublished in his lifetime. Burgess translated Belli into defiantly colloquial English, taking care to preserve the tone of the original poems:.

The author in London in , aged There has been increasing suspicion about Christians wanting to convert the nation and take over power. That was the underlying subtext in the emotional controversy over the right of Christians to use Allah in their Bibles.
Yet, no action was taken to stop the Sikhs from using the word when it was revealed that it was used in reference to God in their holy scriptures. So one cannot but wonder about this fear about Christians and their intentions in this country.
The irony of it is the Christians had a great opportunity to win converts and they had a whole century at least to do it. I am referring to the colonial times under the British when very many Catholic priests and nuns and Protestant missionaries set up schools all over the country and enrolled thousands of young Malayan and then Malaysian children.
Non-Christians, Muslims included, would stand quietly and wait for it to be over. No one was fazed, upset, offended or felt threatened that they were being subtly influenced to convert, or their faith undermined by listening to the prayers. Many of the teachers were Catholic priests and nuns who were undoubtedly motivated by their religion to come so far from home to bring enlightenment and education to the natives.
Surely if they wanted to, they could have converted many to their faith. Which is why Malaysia is still a Muslim majority nation. Instead, countless citizens benefited from being educated in mission schools. Many of our leaders and top government servants, at least the older ones, have acknowledged they owe their success to such educators while remaining true to the faith of their forefathers.
