NAC: New laws won’t end sectarian tension

Passing a unified law for building places of worship or omitting religion from ID cards will not end sectarian tension, said General National Association for Change Coordinator Dr. Abdul Galil Mustafa.

He added that politicians should not be distracted with such demands and that the problem is not the absence of laws ensuring equality for all Egyptians but rather a failure to implement laws already in place.

According to Mustafa, society has forsaken the rule of law which reduces sectarian tension and ensures protection of rights.

Judicial rulings are not implemented unless they are in accordance with the desires of the ruling regime and those surrounding it, said Mustafa. He described the current situation in Egypt as being the "destructive" and "miserable" result of dictatorship and corruption.
