Dubai censors scrutinize Musharraf book

The Dubai censorship board has postponed authorization to distribute within Dubai Pakistan PM Musharraf's autobiography, In the Line of Fire, apparerently because of his allegations that the Pakistan nuclear energy chief had set up a front in Dubai to sell nuclear secrets to other countries. Dubai booksellers say that unlike magazines, where objectionable parts may be blocked out, with books, "If it does not pass the censors, it would be banned completely."

As noted in my Oct. 2 entry below, the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party of India has also called for his book to be banned because of maps within the book showing disputed areas to be Pakistan territory.
