Arabs are increasingly saying they are no longer religious, according to the largest and most in-depth survey undertaken of the Middle East and North Africa.

The finding is one of a number on how Arabs feel about a wide range of issues, from women's rights and migration to security and sexuality.

More than 25,000 people were interviewed for the survey - for BBC News Arabic by the Arab Barometer research network - across 10 countries and the Palestinian territories between late 2018 and spring 2019.

Definitely a positive development!

The more the world moves away from organised religion the quicker we can work toward making it a better place for everyone Smile

What is wrong with organization?  Seems to me the way to greater peace and prosperity is through organization.

Perhaps you mean religious organization.  I would agree to that.  Many types of organization are harmful...organized crime being a classic example.  I would also be in favor of minimizing capitalism...put people back in front of profit.

But organization is just a method.  The issue is with the content.
