Egyptian actor Khaled Abu Al Naja has given rise to
controversy about posting a comment on his official page on the social network
Twitter proposing to marry the woman who was dragged and beaten by Egyptian
military officers activist Ghada Kamal.

Khaled stated that his statement is a political stance which
expresses his resentment to the manner in which Ghada was brutally treated by
the military for taking part in a demonstration calling for an end to the
Military Council’s rule. He added that no one will allow the women of Egypt to
be treated in such a barbaric manner and marrying Ghada is an honor for him and
any man in the world.
Khaled added that with his statement he joins the voices of
all Egyptians that refuse to have women be treated in such a way. The actor
stated that he wanted to show Ghada that she should be proud of herself for she
stood up to the military and spoke out about the treatment she received while
in custody despite all threats.
Khaled is known to be one of the most active stars taking
part in the demonstration in Egypt since the beginning of the January 25
Revolution that overthrew the government of President Husni Mubarak.
