Ahmed Mohamed is detained for blasphemy.

On May 9, 2022, security officials arrested Mohamed at his home in a village in the Fayoum Governorate. He reportedly remained forcibly disappeared for several days until he reappeared before the state security prosecutor. Mohamed was charged with leading a terrorist group that disrespects “heavenly” religions, desecration of religious symbols, and publicly violating one of the “heavenly” religions.
