The Egyptian Ministry of Religious Endowment has shuttered 27,000 local places of worship under the pretext of fighting terrorism, while awarding 400 preaching permits to Salafists.
An Egyptian administrative court on Feb. 18 upheld the Ministry of Religious Endowments’ decision…. a move intended to protect young people from the militancy and extremism that can prevail in such places, which lack the legal standing to hold Friday prayers….
