One can not imagine that security and local unity would cut off power and water from a church building to prevent Copts from praying, after complaints from extremists protesting the Copts’ prayer. This happened in the village of Al-Hager, Saqalta center, Sohag.
Al-Hager in Sohag where the church of the Holy Virgin and the Saints Mar-Girgis and Abu-Seifein had stood since 2013, the police said they received complaints from Muslim villagers against the church, and thus decided to close it and disconnect its electricity and water supply. The four-storey building housed a church, a home for the pastor, a centre for social services, and a pre-school nursery. It serves 3000 Copts.
