A group of Egyptian lawyers, who belong to the Muslim Brotherhood political party, have filed lawsuits against a number of Egyptian female artists. The top of the list of artists to be sued are Egyptian actresses Summaya Al Khashab.
In the lawsuit filed, it was claimed that the said actresses present roles that are too provocative and encourage sexuality and other inappropriate behaviors.
According to the London based Elaph, the lawyers had gathered a number of public statements made by the actresses that insult religious people. The same lawyers had previously filed a lawsuit against Egyptian comedian actor Adel Imam for insulting and ridiculing Islam. The lawyers stressed that these actors and actresses should be severely prosecuted by the law and even stoned.
