Ramez Galal’s Prank Show Might Be Taken off the Air by Egypt’s Censorship Authority

The Egyptian Censorship Authority has launched a legal complaint against the show, among others.

It seems we may no longer be subjected to the antics of Ramez Galal this Ramadan, thanks to a legal complaint filed by the Egyptian Censorship Authority over permits and licensing issues.

According to Ahram Online, Khaled Abdel Galil, the authority’s head, who is also an advisor to the Ministry of Culture, launched a total of nine complaints against several Ramadan series and advertisements.

The complaints allege that they are airing without permission from the Censorship Authority or an official license, according to a statement issued by the Ministry of Culture on Monday.

Other programmes included were El Herbaya and El Mostashfa whose permissions were rejected by the Censorship Authority before the month of Ramadan started. Hany Haz El Gabal and Ramez Galal’s Taht El Ard also failed to obtain broadcasting licenses.

If these complaints result in the closure of these shows (our eyes are especially on Ramez Galal, of course), 3ozoomas may just become slightly more bearable. For fans of the shows, Ramadan may suddenly become a little less festive. Oh, well.
