On the Baha'i Faith in Eqypt: El Baradei supports freedom of religion


 
It is heartening to see the support that is given to the principle of religious freedom in Egypt today. -gw
 
From: Northwest BahaiLibrary

Dr. Muhammad El Baradei, former Director General of the International
Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), who has announced his candidacy for the
presidency in Egypt [as an independent] , stressed in a meeting with a
delegation of human rights activists, intellectuals and authors in
Egypt, that the Baha’i religion must be recognized as an official
religion in Egypt, within a framework of religious freedom.

Nice if it is true - but the sources are anti-ElBaradei people who say other untrue things about him. I'm keeping my powder dry on this story:

If you hear of something coming from ElBaradei himself, do let me know
