Egyptian Novelist Nawal al-Saadawi may be charged with contempt of religion

Egyptian lawyer Samir Sabry filed a complain on Tuesday to the Prosecutor General against acclaimed feminist author Nawal al-Saadawi, charging her with contempt of religion displayed in a BBC channel interview she gave.

During her interview with BBC News, Saadawi suggested that texts in holy books such as the Quran and Torah should be changed if they conflict with public interest.

“There are no constants in religion, no fixed text. Renewal of religious discourse means changing constants,” she said in her interview.
