Al-Tit channel owner arrested

Egyptian police said they arrested on Thursday the owner of a television station that broadcasts belly dancing, on suspicion of "facilitating prostitution."

Baleegh Hamdi, owner of the Al-Tit channel, is also accused of "harming public decency," police said, adding that he was arrested in his apartment.

The prostitution charge appears to stem from messages broadcast on the channel, a police official said without elaborating.

In a clip from the station's broadcast posted on YouTube, a ticker at the bottom of the screen shows text messages from viewers who say they are looking for spouses.

Egyptian law bans prostitution and vaguely defined offences against public decency.

Information must be revealed
Iam very happy today because i can see that the changes are happening. However, we are still waiting for many information to be revealed such as who is the sponser of such channel, is there is any government or foreign agency sponsers this channel and funds it or not, etc.. Without elaborating, we are progressing and we are in pursuit of decency.

Dear Mahmoud, you are right this kind of shameless material is very much pushed and sponsored by Westerners and Israelis to deviate good Muslim minds. New Egyptian administration should control such dangerous material for public viewing even on satelites.
