What is this now? A group on facebook created by Samir Ahmed demanding the confiscation of Mohamed El Tohamy’s novel – A Human Being on Hold! Samir Ahmed has appointed himself as the public defender of morality, the judge on Mohamed El Tohamy’s nationalism , and decided to fight evil with evil and let the cries of war fill the sky! Samir, in the description of the group says:
“This is a novel that has to be confiscated because it negatively portrays the Egyptian identity as though the Egyptian is a hypocrite price-less principle-less person.” Then Samir goes on listing his personal interpretation of certain chapters and incidents in the novel and finally tells the author that if he did not know the difference between right and wrong he should ask a Sheikh instead of spreading his ill-intentioned thoughts that will damage him and gullible readers. Finally he describes Mohamed as “a fake pretentious destructive storyteller” and he calls for confiscating the blasphemous novel before it reaches the hands and the minds of our little Egyptians.
