Episode 4: The Coptic Bashmurite Revolution

In 693 A.D., a group of Coptic Christians in Egypt known as the “Bashmurite Copts” revolted against the Muslim government of the day, in protest of the deteriorating state of Copts in Egypt. As a result of their protest, they were killed and their properties were burned. Join Sherif Rizk as he discusses whether revolting is the appropriate response to government oppression, and what Coptic youth can learn from this example today.
