The regime of Abdelfatah Al-Sisi intends to repair the wave of Christian persecution during 2011 and 2013. Starting in August of 2016, the government began giving Christians legal authorization, by creating committees to verify church regulations and allowing Christians to celebrate Mass in places of worship without licenses.
Since 2016, 88 more temples have been approved for Christian worship, making the total stand at 1,109 temples. By giving legal permissions, the government eliminates a common excuse for Islamic violence towards Christians.
