Tunisia TV station apologises for showing God in broadcast

The head of a private Tunisian TV channel apologised today for airing part of a film judged blasphemous by Muslims, after Islamists launched an attack on the networks offices in protest. I apologise, Nessma TV president Nebil Karoui said on Monastir radio about Fridays broadcast of Persepolis, a globally-acclaimed film on Irans 1979 revolution.

The offending scene of the animated film concerns an old, bearded image of God, of whom all depictions are forbidden by Islam. I am sorry for all the people who were disturbed by this sequence, which also shocked me, said Karoui. I believe that to have broadcast this sequence was a mistake. We never had the intention of attacking sacred values.

On Sunday Tunisian police broke up a mob of angry Salafists intent on attacking Nessma offices, raising fears of unrest with historic polls only two weeks away and relaunching the sensitive debate on Tunisias Arab-Muslim identity.



Regards,
