Baha'is will need to forge their documents
It's another sad day for freedom of belief in the world and in Egypt! the court ruled against recognizing Baha'i faith or even writing "other" in the religion field on the National ID Card (reversing a previous ruling). I am a firm believer that the religion information should not be written on the ID card since it is used by anyone who wants to practice discrimination based on religion, however, if it must be there, people should at least be given the choice of what religion to put in, that's basic human right, and that's what the Egyptian constitution is saying! It must be mentioned that one of the most famous Egyptian artist was a baha'i (I am talking about Bikar). To the left, you can see an Egyptian birth certificate with religion field writen as Bahaii for the mother and father.
