Please read this and the file attached. I think it is an outrageous act. I have done a book review and my review has been declined not due to its content or substantial flaw but due to an alleged raid in somewhere in US. Please read this and let me know what do you think?

Dear Prof. Javad:
Thank you again for sending us your review of Peace and the Limits of the
War: Transcending Classical Conceptions of Jihad by Safi M. Louay. I regret
to inform you that after careful review, we find that the manuscript is not
right for us.
As you may know, the police have recently raided IIIT, publisher of the book
and employer of its author, and as a consequence, we do not wish to review
the book at this time. I attach a news item about the raid.
We do, however, most appreciate your sending this review to us and hope you
will keep us in mind for your future writings. We wish you every success in
placing this review elsewhere.
