RIYADH — Publishers displaying books at an international book fair in Saudi Arabia are coming under scrutiny and pressure by religious police.
Saudi Arabia’s semi-official Al Watan daily said Thursday the religious police tried to remove exhibited books on love and different religions at the Riyadh International Book Fair that opened Tuesday.
The paper quoted an Egyptian publisher as saying a group of young local men, accompanied by a mutawa, or government-authorized religious police enforcing Islamic law, entered his booth and asked the publisher to remove some books.
“This happened without official paperwork and without officials, as they came in and began choosing titles they wanted removed,” said the publisher, who was not identified. “The problem is, they didn’t even bother to read the inside of the books, in which one of them even defends Islam, but its title was about Christ; so they asked for their removal” from the exhibition, he added.
