First Islamic café in Egypt… the beginning of the end?

As an article in Scoop Empire announces, the Islamist’s grip in Egypt is increasing by the day (it’s not just about politics) and a true “Islamic café” has been inaugurated in Cairo. In this new hipster place, there is Islamic music in the background, a no smoking policy has been imposed, there is an area for children (well, for whole families to hang in) and, above all, gender mixing has been banned (how do they actually check if a couple is married or not? Please people get back to me on this). I do agree with Dania Younis when she states “the question is, if those people are that much religious, how do they manage to avoid all the smoke, gender mixing and music in the streets on their way to the café?”.
