ANKARA - A Religious Affairs Directorate high committee has severely criticized the book "Daughters of Allah" written by Nedim Gürsel and published by the Doğan publishing house.
"It has been found that the book was insulting and sarcastic, humiliating Allah, its prophets, divine religions, worshipping, holy books and religious principles. This cannot be explained in the scope of freedom of thought or criticism," the report read.
Here are excerpts from the book that were found inapt:
Page 22: About Prophet İbrahim Ğ "that little İbrahim was crossing the line."
Pages 164, 165: As if Ebu Sufyan was talking about Prophet Mohammed Ğ "that ignorant child later married to Hatice, daughter of Hüveylid, then he became rich, however he could not become a man."
Page 240: Menat, a non-living thing, a totem, talking about Aisha (Mohammed’s wife) Ğ "Oh Aisha, dear Aisha! You little hog Aisha!"
Page 29: About Prophet İbrahim Ğ "He could not have illegitimate children from both of them."
Page 71: About the Koran Ğ "The crooked letters of the holy book."
Page 120: "Allah’s darlings lying naked."
