Iran’s IRNA news agency said in September the book had 52 caricatures plus satirical writings over 108 pages. It was published by Martyr Shahbazi Publications and the Islamic student movement of the Science and Industry University.
«The presentation ceremony will be held on January 27th, with the attendance of a number of government officials,» said Mohammad-Mehdi Hemmati, who is involved in the project.
