Nationalistic tunes “that are worth broadcasting” will be allowed...That's a strange way to put it.
Meanwhile, sarcastic songs mocking public figures will be also banned because of the “sensitiveness of the political situation,” it said....Oh, great. No sarcasm? That should help.
Online, social media users have already begun question the ban on romantic musical interludes....[Twitter] user @_amroali, asking: “How do romantic songs cause chaos?”Distracted by the possibility of no love songs? Well, I'm obviously distracted. Don't be distracted!
Commenters were also reposting the phrase “Egypt kills love.”
But Egyptian blogger Mina Naguib, who has written widely on recent political instability in the country, doubts the authenticity of the news and has suggested it could all just be a rumor; a tool he believes is used by officials to “distract” Egyptians.
