A Tunisian court has fined the owner of a private TV station for broadcasting the award-winning, controversial French/American film “Persepolis,” which tells the story of a girl growing up in Iran and includes a scene depicting Allah, forbidden in Islam.
Nabib Karoui was ordered by the court to pay 2,400 dinars ($1,700) for “broadcasting a film that disturbs public order and threatens proper morals,” while a technician and another official at Karoui’s Nessma station were both fined 1,200 dinars, the BBC reports.
Radical Muslims have denounced “Persepolis” as blasphemous, and Islamist militants attacked Nessma’s offices when the film was broadcast last October. Dozens of men later mobbed Karoui’s home, throwing Molotov cocktails, and some ultra-conservatives had called for his execution, according to The Daily Telegraph.
