A noted convert in Egypt released on bail this week for the appeal of his disputed conviction for “inciting sectarian violence” was quickly imprisoned again on equally controversial charges from 2009 of “defaming Islam,” his attorney said.
 
Local security officials on Monday (July 21) turned Bishoy Armia Boulous, previously known as Mohammed Hegazy, over to the Ministry of Interior to face the blasphemy charges filed five years ago.

In 2009 two lawyers supported by a group of Islamists charged him with defaming Islam after he filed what became a very public lawsuit to force the Egyptian government’s Ministry of Interior to change the religious affiliation listed on his state-mandated national identification card from Muslim to Christian.

The review was ordered by the Morgan's predecessor Michael Gove, following reports that as many as twenty-five Birmingham schools had been the subject of takeovers. In each case, the governing bodies were infiltrated by radicals who then set about pushing out moderate teachers and implementing radical Islam.
