FOCUS : In Egypt a growing number of young people are identifying as atheists. On paper, Egypt protects freedom of religious beliefs, but this does not extend to those who reject organised religion altogether. Over the Summer, the government launched a campaign to actively fight atheism... But despite the risks, more and more atheists are speaking out, increasingly using the internet to express their views.

Proud of those young people in Egypt!   Islam is clearly a cult FORCING people to accept islam.  People are getting smarter and analyze their faith instead of accepting it blindly.   Bravo to those young atheist!

The number of people killed over ideology or theology is beyond counting. People kill for various reasons but never have I heard of someone killing in the name of their lack of beliefs.

People with intelligence and common sense are leaving religious cults as quick as they can.
However the ruling elite make a lot of money from the sheep and don't want them to leave.

I say: why bother making a new hotline number, , just use the hotline number for reporting terrorists and criminals, that would save u some money!!!!

"On paper, Egypt protects freedom of religious beliefs, but this does not extend to those who reject organised religion altogether"

It does not extend to muslims who want to leave Islam either. Egypt saying it protects freedom of religion is as credible as a meat eating vegetarian
