The Egyptian Government Detains A Progressive Muslim Writer

Mr. Nabeel Abdul Kareem is in detention for his progressive views !
According to Copts United , Security Forces in Alexandria city (Egypt) has detained Mr. Abdul Kareem, a writer- on October 26, 2005 at the Bab-Sharqi Police Station for his writings published on different web sites (including www.Copts-united.com) Mr. Abul Kareem was then transferred to one of the detention centers on November 2, 2005

Copts United deplored these repressive measures that contradict the Egyptian constitution and in particular Article 40, which calls for freedom of expression. Copts United asked for the immediate release of Mr. Abdul Kareem.
Many Copts along with moderate Muslims accuse the Egyptian government of causing the rift between Muslims and Christians in Egypt by adopting repressive and discriminatory practices against Coptic Christians. Mr. Abdul Kareem is among a number of proactive Muslim writers known for their calls to end discrimination against Copts in Egypt

Will the Egyptian government ever change?? What about the so called promises of reform from Muburak that he used during his last campaign? The current government must avoid making the same mistakes of the past. Didn't Muburak secure the support of the Coptic Orthodox church with the promises of more freedoms, the least of which is the freedom of speech which is obviously being suppressed in this situation. People in authority must avoid using a double standard in dealing with issues when it comes to Muslim-Copt relations. The government must also be held accountable for its actions and needs to start gtanting equal "ciztizenship rights" to all people, Muslim and Christian, of Egypt.
May God Bless Egypt

May God be with Mr. Kareem. It takes great courage to speak out when you could very well blend into the woodwork. Mr. Kareem is a Muslim and could have not cared what happened to the Christians in his midst since he was not affected. Instead, he chose to take a stand for what it right and true and he deserves our praise and our prayers.
