Parliamentary committee approves tougher punishment for 'distorting' Quran

Parliament’s Proposals and Complaints Committee on Tuesday approved a draft law submitted by MP Yasser al-Qady proposing a harsher punishment for printing the Quran without a license.

The suggested penalty is imprisonment and a fine of not less than LE100,000 and not more LE200,000 for those who print, publish, distribute, display or circulate recordings of the Quran without license, or print and record it abroad.

The Justice Ministry also suggested that imprisonment be for a term of not less than 10 years and not more than 15 years, and a fine of not less than LE100,000 and not more than LE1.3 million for those who intentionally change verses while printing or recording the Quran.

Ahmed Mohib, a member of the legislation sector at the Ministry of Justice, praised the draft law and affirmed the ministry's approval of it.
