Asmā’ Nassār argues that Egypt cannot be a civil country without making a distinction between religion and state. For instance, she says that some Egyptian schools force Christians to memorize verses from the Qur'ān.
Nassār recommends several ways to improve the civil state in Egypt.
The first way to do so is by approving a unified law for building places of worship. She says that if this law were implemented, it could have prevented the recent ‘Umrāniyyah church riots and the subsequent response.
Secondly, she advocates the establishment of personal status law that is accepted by the Orthodox, Catholic, and Evangelical churches. Currently, the state cannot approve civil marriages if they are not approved by a recognized church.
Thirdly, Nassār mentions the need for an adoption law for Christians, as the Bible does not prohibit such behavior.
Fourthly, Nassār discusses whether to cancel or modify the 2nd article in the Egyptian Constitution, which states that the country must follow Sharī‘ah.
Finally, she suggests banning Niqāb in certain places.
