15 examples of how censorship works in the middle EastPictolic
Bikinis and mini-skirts in the Western world the common thing, which is not true of the middle East. In countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, women must adhere to Islamic tradition, according to which any part of the body except hands and face should be hid. And as it turned out, the same goes for photos of Western women, such as Britney Spears and Madonna.
In North America all sold in the wrapper of sexuality and frivolity. Therefore, when hot cover with Western divas or the usual advertising images enter the territory of the Islamic countries, these photos are censored. In most cases this deals with the religious police, or mutawa, and their main tool is photoshop. And often, the censorship goes too far.
