    'CAIRO - 14 April 2020: Three teenagers were detained on Monday for four days pending investigation for an accusation of blasphemy after they posted a video showing one of them was smoking while performing a prayer.

    A video went viral on social media, showing a minor was performing an Islamic prayer and one of his two friends lit a cigarette in the first’s mouth to pull on, while the third young man was recording this scene.

    The three teenagers are 17 years old each. They were arrested immediately in Al-Beheira governorate after their video stirred controversy on social media.'

    God must be a bit like Trump, high ego and low esteem. Easily offended.

    The very notion of blasphemy is an affront to decency.

    Well it proves at least one thing. We're still not out of the primitive stage of society.

    Probably won't be for a very very long time to come.

    Religion:
    UNdecided [they all appear to be equally true]
    weirdly i have had some very 'spiritual' experiences in the most unlikely of situations
    blatant disrespect of established rules though is another matter and religionists take that "seriously"
    one does not offend the propriety of the cannibals as they tend to throw the offenders into the stewing pot :eek::D
    life amongst larval 'humans' ...egads
