CAIRO – 4 January 2018: Parliament’s Committee on Religion is about to prepare an explanatory note on the draft law to criminalize atheism in Egypt, amongst several steps Egypt takes to combat atheism, said on Thursday the head of committee, Amr Hamroush.

The law consists of four articles; the first defines atheism; the second criminalizes atheism and imposes severe sanctions on atheists; the third stipulates that the penalties would be cancelled if a person eschews his atheist beliefs and the fourth one dictates that the penalties declared in the law are severe.

Seems unbelievable to be sanctioned for not believing in something that CANNOT be proved exists!. Certainly makes me glad to be in a democratic land!!. I feel sorry for the Atheists & non-believers all over the world, who are persecuted for not believing in imaginary entities!!.
