Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm continues its close watch of the world's interest in the Baha'i crisis in Egypt.
Following its last article of April 2nd, reported on in this post, the paper just picked up another story regarding the recent German Parliamentarian attention to the struggle of the Baha'is of Egypt which was also reported on in this subsequent post.
The article published on 6 April, written by Muhammad Abd-El-Khaleq Mussahel, is entitled "German Government Parliamentarian Questioning on 'Persecution of Baha'is' in Egypt."
This article is quite objective and factual. It introduces the recent interest of the German Parliament (Deutcher Bundestag) in the case and translates into Arabic--point by point--the entirety of the document presented to the Bundestag, which was authored by several members of the German Parliament. The English translation of the document can be seen in this previous post.
This careful attention by a prominent Egyptian newspaper to a critical case involving an oppressed group of Egyptian citizens illustrates a new wave of journalistic integrity and independence which is heartwarming. It shows that, despite all the negativity expressed by some of the Egyptian media outlets, several others continue to uphold their ethical and professional high standards of objective and balanced reporting.
