    Late Monday, we found out that TV host and Islamic researcher Islam El-Behairy was sent to jail after a court reduced an early 5 years jail sentence to one year over charges of "contempt of religion" because of his suspended TV show on Pro-regime TV channel Al-Qehara wal Nas.
    I do not know how he was sentenced or how his sentence was reduced when in a similar case in June he was acquitted from blasphemy.
    Now Islam will be in jail at least for three months till his lawyer can appeal and the appeal is accepted.
    Following the court's new reduced sentence, the TV host slammed what happened to him and described Egypt as "the land of injustice"

    انا اخدت سنة سجن قدمت للناس وللدين كل خير ودلوقتي باخد سنة سجن بلد الظلم هي مصر
    Posted by Islam Behery on Monday, December 28, 2015
    I was sentenced to a year in jail. I did good to the people and to the religion and now I was sentenced to a year in jail.
    Egypt is a land of injustice
    On his official Facebook account and before heading to his prison, El-Behairy mocked what he called El-Sisi's so-called "Religious revolution".
    TV host and Islamic researcher Islam El-Behairy

    Now his fans, who are mostly Pro-Sisi supporters are in shock that El-Sisi did not pardon him or that this happened during the time of the President who called for a new religious discourse and is being hailed by right-wingers in the West as the man leading a reform in Islam.

    First, according to the law, the president can not interfere except all the appeals are over.

    Second, those supporters did not pay attention that despite the current Egyptian president slammed Al-Azhar for failing to develop Egypt's religious discourse as he wanted , he and other state officials made it clear several times that it was the mission of the state institutions "Al-Azhar and Dar Ifta as well ministry of religious endowment" only to renovate the religious discourse in the country.

    There is no place for independent religious scholars or thinkers accordingly because, the state wants to control the religious discourse as it has always done.
    Now for those who do not understand what I am talking about it.

    In a nutshell, the Islamic researcher turned into a TV host questioned the credibility of Al-Bukhari's interpretation to Prophet Mohamed "PBUH" quotes and life whereas many current sheikhs from Al-Azhar believe it is completely wrong to do this especially El-Behairy is not a sheikh or Al-Azhar graduate.

    He also challenged the views of Middle age scholar Ibn Taymiyyah about military Jihad.
    Alread , he is not the first one to challenge the credibility of those Islamic scholars in modern times nor in Egypt or in the world.
    Earlier Tuesday, I knew that famous Islamic scholar as well leading MB member Sheikh Mohamed Al-Ghazli published a book in 1989 challenging the weak Prophetic quotes in Al-Bukhari in a way that drives the Salafists and hardliners in the Arab world mad till now.

    I do not think Sheikh Al-Ghazli was dragged to court over his views or was secret secular or atheist.
    Ibn Taymiyyah's Middle age fatwas about wars during the Mogul wars are being disputed day and night even by using his later fatwas.

    Now, Islam El-Behairy is a man of thought that should be disputed by thought on TV and not by courts and jail regardless of what you think about that thought.
     His jail won't change his mind or his thought nor will his fans change their minds about him and his thought.

    Personally, I am not a fan of Islam Behairy or his style on TV.
    He is not as powerful or sophisticated as scholars like late Nasr Abu Zeid when it comes to renovation of religious discourse.

    His fans are from the viewers from that nationalist right wing secular TV channel think that he is the first to challenge many of the misconceptions in Islam and its history yet it is not true as I hinted above.

    Those fans are still in shock to know that the current state we have in Egypt is not a true secular one but still Conservative one but without Muslim Brotherhood.

    Now human rights organizations in Egypt are demanding the release of El-Behairy.
    I am not surprised that this is happening at all.

    A group of Egypt's most  famous and talented photographers in Egypt decided to launch an annual photojournalism competition in Egypt to choose the best news photo for the year.

    That group of photographers decided to name that competition after detained Freelance photographer Mahmoud Abu Zeid aka Shawkan and so we have in Egypt now Shawkan Photo Awards.

    The judges for this year's Shawkan Photo awards were:
    1. Hossam Diab: The former head of photography section in Al-Masry Al-Youm and former head of photographers section in the Egyptian journalists syndicate.
    2. Khaled Douski: The head of photography section in AFP Egypt office.
    3. Magdy Ibrahim: The head of the photography section in Al-Shorouk.
    4. Mosa'ab El-Shamy: The photographer in AP Cairo office.  
    5. Eman Helal: The freelancer photographer.
    Here are the judges in a nice photo. 
    Those judges chose  the ten most impressive photos for the year and from those photos they chose the top five including the 2015 Photo. 
    From left to right: El-Shamy, Douski, Diab, Ibrahim, Helal
    When I look to those photos, I see some of the most important events in 2015.
    Here I will share the top five photos descendingly

    5- The killing of a Pro-Morsi protester during the Eid in 2015 in Giza by Belal Wagdy

    The killing of a protester by Belal Wagdy

    4-The breakdown of late lieutenant-colonel Mostafa Al-Wateedy's wife during his funeral after he was killed in a terrorist attack by Al-Sayid Al-Baz in July 2015.

    3- The look of dying child after being shot in the clashes between protesters and security forces during the 25 January revolution anniversary protests by Belal Darder.

    And the photo of 2015 goes to the shot that captured the attention of the whole world when photographer Islam Osama captured the last moments in the life of leftist activist Shaimaa El-Sabbagh 

    She was shot down in a rally atTalaat Harb square by security forces on the anniversary of  the 25 January revolution on 24 January 2015. After busy year in a court and a fast trial ,at a police officer was charged of killing a protester and was sentenced for 15 years in unprecedented court ruling of its kind.

    Honestly, that photo of Osama and other photos from that rally that ended sadly were the smoking gun against the ministry of interior and its attempt to cover the matter.

    Now in addition to those top five photos, the Shawkan Photo awards shared the most popular and like photos on its Facebook page as people's choice.
    Here are the photos in no particular order.
    • The First meeting between a prisoner in “Marriott cell” aka Al-Jazeera staff trial and his wife after suspending visits in jail for months by Fared Kotb. That detainee is from the other lesser known Egyptian detainees in the case. 
    The first meeting after months of absence "Fared Kotb"
    • Saving an old man in working class area from a fire by Ahmed Al-Maliky 
    Saving the elderly by Ahmed Al-Maliky

    • That moment between a mother and her detainee son at court by dear Heba El-Kholy

    • That moment when a taxi driver sees his car on fire after clashes between Pro-Morsi supporters and security forces in Mataria by Moataz Zaki in January 2015

    • The protest of MA and Ph.D. holders in Tahrir square that was dispersed by force by Osama El-Sayed.

    • From the same protest, "it was the main protest that broke into Tahrir square", a look from MA/Ph.D. holder to the CSF conscripts by Mohamed Salah. 
    That look by Mohamed Salah
    • The last photo is a heartbreaking photo for a boy sitting beside the blood of his father who was killed by security forces during his arrest at their home by Hesham El-Khosheny. I have not seen it before. 
    Besides my dad's blood by Hesham El-Khosheny
    I think some of those photos if not all of them will tell you why some think a camera is a very dangerous device in Egypt.
