Mariz Tadros notes that the “inclusive spirit” of the January 25 Revolution, in which Christians and Muslims joined together to overthrow President Hosni Mubarak, led many Egyptians to believe that years of “horrendous” sectarian violence had come to an end. Instead, Tadros’ research shows that after the revolution, the number of sectarian attacks increased and “continues to rise.”
