The center expressed solidarity with the Coptic journalist Hanan Fekri, who is accused of contempt of Islam. The center members watched the video with the alleged charges and did not find contempt of any religion, and said the word used by the journalist is used in a normal context and can be uttered by any Muslim in the same context.
The statement warned the Egyptian people of drifting to this “sectarian quagmire”, which would lead to ruin, while the Muslim Brotherhood would be controlling agencies of the state.
Some accused Hanan Fekri, a member of the Journalists Syndicate, of insulting Islam at a conference held at the Journalists Syndicate under the title of “rising reactionary visions against Egyptian women and how to address them”.
Fekri denied the accusations, stressing that what is practiced against her is one of the crimes of sectarian strife and terrorism for silencing of mouths and extortion.
