World Brief

CAIRO — Egyptian authorities have banned a book by Mohammed Fattuh, “Modern Sheikhs and the Industry of Religious Extremism,” criticizing the increasing influence of a new generation of popular Muslim TV preachers, according to publisher Mohammed Madbuli.

“Members of the security services came to our shop and confiscated 280 copies of the book,” Madbuli says. Book is a collection of 23 essays written by Fattuh, from criticism of TV preachers advocating “Islamicazation of Egyptian society” to what he calls “modern sheikhs who wear suits, preach their word on television and meet their supporters in five-star hotels.”
