Persecution of Christians in Egypt by Muslims

Apart from illegal persecution, torture and molestation of Christians in Egypt legal persecution under the Islamic law is also taking place such as the blasphemy law.
Incidents such as these http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-13331628 have taken place in the past where Christians churches have been attacked, riots have taken place leading to tensions between Muslims and Christians.
Recently many protests have been carried out by Christians appealing "stop killing Christians in Egypt".
 "Police and armed civilians have laid siege to the seat of the Coptic church in Cairo, killing one person and injuring at least 21, as a funeral for four Christians killed in sectarian clashes on Saturday descended into chaos"-

This is another example of violence against Christians minority in Egypt where some Muslim men are molesting a Christian woman in daylight shouting Allahu Akbar.


According to Islamic law Christians are inferior and cannot stand against the Muslims. The legal persecution of Christians is taking place under the blasphemy law. Many Christians are getting punished under this law.  Dimyana Abdel-Nour a Christian woman who took History classes at a school in Egypt was accused of Insulting Islam.
Many Egyptian Christians are facing blasphemy charges in Egypt which is showing the increasing intolerance of the Muslim regime.
