Reverts meet at Madinah
By Zafarul-Islam Khan


Egyptian cinema has known for years the unique phenomenon of well-known actors and actresses shunning the limelight and going back to live in peace away from the unclean environs of the film industry. They are called ‘Reverts to God.’ Actors include Hasan Yusuf, Hamdi Hafiz and Magdi Imam while actresses include names which long ruled the Arab screen like Suhair Al-Babili and Shams Al-Baroudi. Late last month a programme organised in Madinah by the Taibah Women’s Charitable Society broguht some of these actresses together where they spoke about their life in the film industry and why they left the world of ‘art’.

Early this month revert actors too met in a similar programme in Madinah where they spoke about their life before and after their decision to shun the film industry.

The last three decades have witnessed rapid Islamisation of the Egyptian society . The government remains dedicated to deny legitimacy to this phenomenon although it cannot dare to go to the extent of the extremist regimes in Turkey and Tunisia. Recently Dr Abdel Mun’im Saeed, director of the Al-Ahram Centre for Political and Strategic Studies said that more than 92 percent of the Egyptian people are committed to the ‘Islamic stream’ despite the fact that the State does not allow this stream to express itself through a political party.
