Egypt: Christian Convicted of Blasphemy

(Worthy News)– Yet another Christian has been convicted of blasphemy for “ridiculing or insulting a heavenly religion” in violation of the Egyptian Penal Code’s Article 98(f).

According to International Christian Concern, Mounir Beshay had posted a video clip from a satellite network about the “suckling of adults” hadith in November. Months later, outraged Muslim villagers demonstrated in front of Beshay’s home and set his motorcycle on fire.

Beshay was arrested at his workplace and his case was assigned to the Economic Misdemeanors Court in Dakahlia, Egypt, where he sentenced to prison for one year.
