Light is an electromagnetic radiation, a form of particle of energy called a photon. Since it is a form of energy it could not be deflected by electric or magnetic field. Moreover light is a chargeless particle so it can’t produce electric field and it cannot be differentiated into magnetic poles as it’s energy concentration is uniformly distributed hence a magnetic field could not disturb it.
