Egypt Scores 2.9 in Corruption Perception Index!

Transparency International is a global organization against corruption. It measures the corruption of every country on a yearly basis through CPI, which stands for Corruption Perception Index (CPI). CPI is way of determining a country's corruption through polls and surveys, conducted by Transparency International. On a scale of 1.0, being most corrupt, to 10.0, being least corrupt, Egypt proudly held a CPI of 2.9 in year 2007, along with the rest of the Arab countries within the range of 2.0-3.9.

Egypt is 2.9 out of 10 clean, which is not bad for a developing country, but really bad for an Islamic nation. If it's a true Islamic nation that follows the Islamic Shari'a very well, it would easily score a 10.0 in CPI. By the way, the country holding first place in being least corrupt is Denmark. Denmark that has been publishing caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) and insulting 1.4 billion Muslims all around the world is considered the world's least corrupt country. How ironic!
