The Egyptian Initiative calls for the release of an Azharite teacher accused of spreading the "Quranic" doctrine:

Stop the prosecution of the Thinkers

The Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights called for the release of Reda Abdel Rahman, a teacher at the Al-Azhar Institute in Kafr Saqr, Sharkia Governorate, and for the charges against him and others to be dropped for publishing what is known as the Qur’anic doctrine.

Sources from Abd al-Rahman's family said that on August 22, security forces arrested him and 7 other relatives, all of them belonging to the family of Ahmed Sobhi Mansour, a former professor at Al-Azhar University and a thinker known for adopting the Qur’anic sect.

The sources added that the security forces directed to them questions related to their relationship with Ahmed Sobhi Mansour and the fact that they adopted the Quranic doctrine, and released all of them except for Reda Abdel-Rahman, who continued to be held in the National Security headquarters in Kafr Saqr.

The sources confirmed to the initiative that they learned a few days ago that Rida was deported from the National Security headquarters in Kafr Saqr to another place, which the security personnel refused to disclose.

On September 13, Al-Masry Al-Youm newspaper quoted security sources as saying that the security forces had arrested a group of people accused of reviving the Qur’anic sect in Egypt, and that the defendants were referred to the Supreme State Security Prosecution for investigation in preparation for their trial.

Sources from Abdul Rahman's family said that he was repeatedly detained without any charges being brought against him several times for expressing his thoughts on his blog, and after his last detention in 2016, the security services ordered him to completely stop his activity and cut off his contacts with Ahmed Subhi Mansour, and the sources added that he has already closed his blog and stopped completely any activity and cut off his contacts with Mansour since that time.

Dr.. Ahmed Subhi Mansour, a teacher at the Department of History at the Faculty of Arabic Language at Al-Azhar University, was suspended by the university administration in 1985 due to him adopting different ideas from the prevailing ideology inside it. He immigrated to the United States of America in 2000, where he obtained political asylum there.

The Egyptian Initiative condemned the prosecution of those affiliated with religious ideas different from the prevailing ideas in society or adopted by the state, calling for guaranteeing freedom of belief and freedom of expression as rights guaranteed by the constitution, and calling for an immediate end to trials for “contempt of religions” in accordance with Article 98 (f) of the Penal Code according to which they are carried out. The pursuit of people of a wide range of ideas and beliefs, starting with different Islamic schools from the Sunni sect, Such as: Shiite, Quranic, or Ahmadi doctrine or those with critical opinions of the religious heritage, up to the prosecution of those with atheist or secular ideas, and these trials have not slowed down at any time and continue until now, as the (Mashtol Al-Souq, Misdemeanor Court) in Sharqia last June, sentenced to one year in prison two young men accused of promoting Shiite ideas according to the provisions of the same article.

The Egyptian Initiative also warned of the danger of using Article 27 of the Law on Combating Information Technology Crimes issued in 2018 to target the same spectrum of unconventional ideas and trends, under the pretext of “misuse of social media,” as last June, and according to this article, the Economic Court upheld a misdemeanor appealed in Alexandria, a 3-year prison sentence and a fine of 300,000 pounds for a blogger on charges of participating in managing the "Egyptian Atheists" Facebook page.
