In fact, tensions have risen between the Muslim majority and the Christian minority, especially as the country goes through its political transition.Radical Islamic groups accuse the Coptic Church of supporting Ahmed Shafiq, who was the former minister of the old regime and the rival of the current president, Mohamed Morsi.In this sense, Tauadros II said that the state must meet its obligation to protect all citizens.
