Ever wonder about Freedom of the Press Islamic style? Well here's an example: "Though the books were officially withdrawn from Egyptian markets following the objection of scholars from Al-Azhar University, they are still sold secretly. And in Syria and Lebanon, they are still sold openly. I wonder why the author, who died recently, and the publisher, who was a party to the sacrilege, were not prosecuted. Why were the sales of such books permitted? Forgive us, Prophet, pbuh, for the enormity of the lies our enemies are fabricating against you. Our apologies, Prophet, pbuh, in whom is found all human perfection. God, do not punish us for what fools among us do."
