Cairo police raided a number of bookshops in the city and removed copies of the book published by El-Madbouli bookstore.
Al-Azhar authorites said Madbouli bookstore had not acquired a license from the Islamic Research Council (IRC) before publishing the book.
The general manager of the committee for research and publishing at IRC, Mohamed Abdul-Zaher Abul Razek, said that this case dates back to last February when the IRC got a note from a "sovereign body" requesting an investigation into the book. After reviewing it, IRC recommended its confiscation as it violates Islamic thought and criticizes some Islamic trends.
But publisher and Madbouli owner Mohamed Madbouli told The Daily Star Egypt that Al-Azhar might have overstepped its mandate this time.
