The Christians pine for Mubarak, the Muslim Brotherhood is determined to annihilate the Christians in Egypt.
Christians are at least 10% of the population though perhaps 15%. When a Christian man marries a Muslim, it is automatically assumed by the authorities he is a Muslim convert and his identity card (denominating religion) is amended accordingly. Hence the dispute.
