Question: Why was this film banned in Egypt for portraying "Fagin" too sympathetically?

Answer: Fagin was a Jewish character and in the 1930's and 40's Egypt did not like Jewish people. Egypt was heavily anti-Semitic; Jews were denied citizenship, Egypt was part of the Arab League during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, and bombing of Jewish areas in Egypt would occur. It was banned simply out of hate.
