Egyptian secular writer Fatima Naoot will have to spend the next three years behind bars after being found guilty of insulting Islam. The charges stem from a Facebook post that was published in October 2015 in which Naoot spoke against the inhumane practice of sacrificing sheep on Eid al-Adha, a tradition that has been carried out for thousands of years. She describe the tradition as one of the most inhumane practices carried out by human beings.
During the Eid al-Adha festivities, sheep are sacrificed as a symbol of Abrahamís willingness to sacrifice his son. Sheep are put down while they are still fully conscious and moving and experience terrible suffering, all in the name of tradition.
Je suis Fatma Naoutكلنا مع فاطمة ناعوت و كلنا عارفين الكوارث التي تحدث اثناء العيد الكبير خارج المجازر و داخلها
