Islamic “Protesters” Storm Church in Giza, Assault Parishioners

 In Foreign, religion

Giza, Egypt – On Friday, after their Jummah prayer time, hundreds of Islamic “protesters” gathered at a Coptic church in Giza. They stormed the building, chanting “hostile slogans”, destroying the contents, and assaulting parishioners. They called for the church to be demolished. The wounded were transported to a local hospital.

The Coptic church  in the Atfih Diocese, Giza, was not “registered” – which means that they had not received building permits from the local government. In Egypt, officials are often afraid to issue such permits for Christian churches due to fears of Islamic backlash. Which is a situation that causes many churches to build ‘illegally.’ The church has been conducting prayers and services for 15 years. According to reports, the diocese has been attempting to achieve licensing under a 2016 law.
