Egyptian journal banned over 'blasphemous' poem

Published: 04.08.09, 14:06 / Israel News

An Egyptian court has banned a liberal literature journal for running a poem two years ago likening God to a villager who feeds ducks and milks cows, an Egyptian paper reported Wednesday.

 

The Tuesday ruling by Egypt's administrative court came after a lawyer filed a lawsuit against the journal Ibdaa, or Creativity for publishing a poem titled "On the Balcony of Leila Murad" by a well-known poet Helmi Salem, according to the al-Ahram daily. (AP)
