If sin free tourism is bad, then I propose that the US allows people to walk around naked and have sex in public on Huntington Beach. Until then, I respect but may not agree with Egypt's decision.
hmmm but it is not only about that
this is stupid from islamists to forbid alcohol.
alcohol is forbidden for muslims, not for non muslims. they can allow it in hostels, places of tourism and so...

(and even i never understand why a state would decide what is Islamic or not. If someone didn't respect the words of our prophet it is his own problem, not the problem of the state)

those non-muslims cover their whole body with those gruesome burqa???

When they are at the beach, they have to cover their whole body, no bikini's???

When the ancient civilization was there, drinking alcohol, wearing bikini type of clothes are normal.

I would like to see those nuts to put out such bans thinking that is their land for now. Let's see how long they can hold onto that.
Mind your own business.

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood says no changes to tourism, alcohol and bikinis okay

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood says no changes to tourism, alcohol and bikinis okay - Bikya Masr
CAIRO: Representatives from Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) sent a message of reassurance to tour operators and foreign workers in the tourism sector, at a meeting on Sunday, pledging no changes or restrictions over beaches in the coming period.

The party also asserted the freedom of the tourist to wear whatever clothes, including bikinis, and have full access to all types of food and beverages.

The FJP took almost 45 percent of seats in recent parliamentary and was followed by the ultra-conservative Salafist al-Nour Party, which won around 20 percent of the seats.

“The party regrets the decline in tourism and other economic activities as one of the repercussions of the January 25 revolution,” said Ahmed Suleiman, Chairman of the Tourism Committee of the party, during a meeting organized by the Business Association and attended by representatives of the FJP and foreign tour operators.

He pointed out that the party would contribute to the redoubling of “the rates of tourism in the coming period,” and that the situation of tourism and its present conditions “would remain the same as before the revolution and this sector will not be subjected to any changes as long as the FJP is represented in the parliament.”

Suleiman stressed the need to reactivate beach tourism as it is one of the “most popular aspects of tourism in Egypt.”

He said the FJP is already speculating tourism numbers, “taking a number of measures including the establishment of a series of museums along the Nile Valley to boost the cultural tourism traffic.”

He pointed out that monuments and statues currently in stores will be taken out and displayed in the order of dynasties, in each governorate of origin, respectively.

He explained that the party`s vision is to make good use of nature reserves, medical and therapeutic tourism and conferences.

At the same meeting, Ahmed el-Imam, a member of the “tourism boosting committee” of the FJP said the government, without mentioning the military junta by name, “is one of the main reasons afflicting tourism internally, and while Egypt has about 33 percent of the monuments of the world, the state is incapable of utilizing them in an optimum way,” saying that the party aims at bringing 25 million tourists annually in the upcoming years.

They can not kill 3 million jobs (30 lakhs) in tourism sector. They can not compromise with 10% GDP. Coz "Bap bada na bhaiya, sabse bada rupaiya" (Money is above all). Without money there is no value for religion.

I have seen many ppl changing there religion coz they were poor and hungry. Lets live in real world, which is run by money (Not religion)

Off topic:

Is it? Who goes to Iran?? Americans? Europeans? Indians or Chinese??
Egypt has 14.05 million International tourists per year, which gives job to 3+ million Egyptians.
In contrast less than 1 million International tourists visit Iran (Mostly Muslims from Arab world).

Sir before making Big claims "even Iran earns a lot from Tourism" please use google.

The ultimate irony here is that when Muslims ask for Sharia, only for themselves, in the west they are treated like they want Neo Nazi isms
But were we have Europeans and others demanding the rights to violate laws that are held dearly by most of the population.

Why can Europeans not respect our laws and way of life?
Yet they demand that we respect theirs.

What's wrong with this? Don't like the rules, don't go to Egypt.

If I don't want to get killed by rebels and warlords, I'm not going to go to Congo. No one forces them to go to Egypt, and no one forces me to go to Congo.
