    Looking at the pictures, I'd guess that some Islamic group feels that the book portrays burka wearing and beating down women in a poor light. We must respect their religion after all, right?

    Yes it is political correctness. We have to tolerate women here being forced to wear full burkas on 95 degree days (I see it repeatedly) and we can't allow books that say its a bad thing. Someone's religion is offended, end of story.  I don't like it, but I'm not the one saying we have to coddle Islam.
