Rabat- Morocco TV channel 2M has decided not to air Wednesday’s episode of its flagship interview program “Moubacharatan Maâkoum” that was meant to discuss the government’s decision to ban Nabil Ayouch’s film prostitution “Much Loved”.
State-owned 2M channel was supposed to air the episode on Wednesday night but canceled it “due to the absence of calm and objective discussion”.
2M has since apologized to its viewers for not airing the episode about “Much Loved”, Nabil Ayouch’s latest film which has created uproar in Morocco.
According to news website Hespress, guests who were expected to participate in the program received telephone calls from 2M telling them that the episode has been canceled.
The program, hosted by Jamaa Goulahsen, was to discuss the government’s decision to ban “Much Loved” and the freedom of artistic expression in Morocco.
The Ministry of Communication said in a statement last week that it has decided to ban the film because “it undermines moral values, and dignity of Moroccan women, and [is] a flagrant attack on the kingdom’s image.”
