Egypt’s Christians increasingly feel like second-class citizens, a member of the beleaguered religious minority told Breitbart Jerusalem.
The Egyptian media has been full of reports of violence against and harassment of Christians all across the country. In May, a Muslim mob attacked Christian-owned houses, stripped an elderly Christian woman, and paraded her through the streets of the village.
Earlier this week, a Muslim mob attacked a Christian house after they suspected a church was under construction inside.
Christian dignitaries have called on the government to repeal the restrictions on Christian freedom of worship in the country, and facilitate church building. They have condemned the government’s “foot-dragging” on the issue, saying the desire not to upset the Muslim community amounted to discrimination.
The Coptic Pope went so far as to say that Christian worship was starting to be perceived as a crime, with Christians needing a special permit to meet with their god.
