Amin Makram Ebeid writes: Cornelis Hulsman kindly asked me to write a few lines on the tragic events that took place in Naj‘ Hammādī and how this could be best managed, punishing the responsible people and working towards reconciliation between Muslims and Christians in the region.

Hulsman comments on the recent sectarian tensions in Fayyūm that were mentioned in this issue and highlights an article by Tarek Heggy about the role of the Egyptian state in Muslim-Christian tensions.
The article discusses the percentage of Egyptians that are sent to receive a religious education.
The author responds to a previous article by Tarek Heggy in which he [Heggy] attacked religious education, especially the Azhar educational institutes.
