The ban was issued in response to a scene in which God appears in the form of a "child who gives a revelation to the prophet Moses," the film's distributor told The Guardian.
Exodus has also been banned in Egypt as a result of its "historical inaccuracies," The Guardian reports, "including an apparent claim that 'Moses and the Jews built the pyramids.'"
"This totally contradicts proven historical facts," Egyptian culture minister Gaber Asfour told the British newspaper. "It is a Zionist film," he said. "It gives a Zionist view of history and contains historical inaccuracies and that's why we have decided to ban it."
