When death threats and murder attempts are OK while disrespect is NOT

An eighteen years old girl from Sharkia, Egypt got arrested for “Disrespecting Islam” as she said that the Hijab is not obligatory in Islam and that premarital sex is not a sin as marriage is nothing but paperwork.

She received death threats from her mother, uncle and brother because of her religious views that went to the extent of attempted murder as she claimed that her mother tried to poison her. So, when she went to the police station to report what happened, they got her arrested for “disrespecting Islam” and her family were freed to go!

This went to a terrible extent that I can’t comment. Since when “disrespect” was a criminal charge and murder attempts were OK? What makes it worse is how the media is biased against the poor little girl talking about her views on Islam and NOT questioning how her mother was freed after trying to kill her while she was arrested for some weird charge that has been used at least twice a day now in Egypt after Morsi came to power!
