Tehran, Jan. 16 – Iran’s bookstore owners are complaining of the government’s decision to ban 200 books, including political, social, cultural, religious, arts, music, scientific and historical literature.

According to a Tehran bookshop owner who wanted to remain anonymous, Iran’s government have recently sent a list of 200 books considered to be “immoral”, “unIslamic”, or “influencing acts against the state”.

“Storeowners have been instructed to remove these books from their shelves and either hand them in or burn them. The sale of such books are prohibited”, he said.

“The Solar Eclipse, Pictures of Two People, and Sharks are among a number of science research books that have now been banned”, he added.

“Simply Music, The Garden of Music, The Music of Khayam are three of the musical books prohibited, and among the religious and political books barred you will find The Words of Christ and The Rights of the Kurds”, the storeowner complained.
