Egypt TV Bans ‘Romantic’ Songs Due to Political Upheaval

Egypt has banned the broadcasting of any “romantic” songs or video clips on its 23 state-owned channels, only allowing “patriotic” music, the state-run Ahram Arabic website said.

Only patriotic tunes “that are worth broadcasting” will be allowed, al-Ahram reported today. Sarcastic songs mocking public figures will be also banned because of the “sensitiveness of the political situation,” it said.

Egyptians will begin voting on Dec. 15 in a referendum on a draft constitution that has polarized voters and led to weeks of violent protests.
