Although it has been considered a classic literature by several readers, the novel still remains in the top list of the banned books. The novel’s profanity, racial content, and its references to rape have provoked many readers to challenge the novel and lead to its removal from school classrooms and libraries. Many readers have disagreed to letting the novel be used in the classroom due to its vulgar language that is evident throughout the book. Expressions such as ‘nigger’ and ‘damn’ are used repeatedly which most find extremely offensive especially to young readers. The fact that the characters in the book are children and are the ones using the profane phrases has left many questioning the novel and not wanting their children to find such expressions as acceptable (Why Was it

Lastly, the series, Harry Potter has inappropriate topics that led it to being banned like magic, sorcery, and witchcraft.

In a society clinging to the cushion of political correctness, to be faced with a novel so offensive, so brash, so seemingly racist in the classroom was initially jarring.

In the passage, teachers force the students to rip pictures of the shah out of all of their textbooks. This made Marjane very confused about what to believe. In the text it says, “But she is the one who told us that the shah was chosen by God!” The teacher continues to say, “ Satrapi! You shouldn’t say things like that.
