The Egyptian Commission for Rights and Freedoms called for dropping the charges of contempt of Islam against four children in case No. 350 of 2015, Bani Mazar Misdemeanor court. The four children are: Molar Atef Edward, Bassem Amgad Hanna, Alber Ashraf Hanna and Clinton Magdy Youssef.
In a statement issued Wednesday, the Commission stressed that this is not the first case, as children were accused of contempt of Islam in Egypt in October 2012 at Marko manor, Al-Fashn, Bani Suef. It went on, “Two Christian children, Nabil Nady Risk, 9 years old, and Mina Nady Farag, 10 years old, were detained for three days after they were accused of contempt of Islam, as a villager alleged that they ripped up Quran. These are very dangerous cases in which social pressures play the main role. Some articles of law are used as swords hanging over the heads of intellectuals, writers, citizens and even children who belong to religious minorities.”
