Popular Egyptian satirist released after questioning

AP, CAIRO

In remarks to a TV presenter on CBC, the private station that airs his program, Youssef said on Saturday that his program does not insult Islam, but aims to expose those who “distort” it.

“We don’t insult religion. What we do is expose those so-called religious and Islamic stations that have offended Islam more than anyone else,” he said. “If anyone is to be investigated for insulting religions, it should be all those who use Islam as a weapon and a political tool to swallow the others using religion.”
