Real democracy seems to be misunderstood in Egypt. Democracy isn't just as simple to describe as "what the majority wants". The rule of the majority is actually totally the opposite of democracy. The basis of democracy is the freedom given to anyone to express any thought in a democratic society that respects a variety of different beliefs and thoughts, which guarantees the respect and safe-being of anyone who believes in any religion/thought as long as it remains a thought and doesn't break the law. If the majority were to repress all other minorities then that's not democracy, that is actually called "totalitarianism" (correct me if I'm wrong).

A real democracy cannot exist without secularism, which naturally goes as part of a whole democracy, respecting the freedom of religion and belief, or non-religion and non-belief.
