When a Muslim cleric asked worshippers at a Cairo mosque to pray for people killed while protesting in support of Egypt's deposed president, one of them stopped him in his tracks.
"Why should we do that?" he asked.
Getting to his feet to make his case, the man in his fifties said anyone wishing to pray for the 80 supporters of former President Mohamed Mursi shot on July 27 should do so at the Muslim Brotherhood protest camp on the other side of town.
"This is prayer, not politics," the imam answered.
But his words fell mostly on deaf ears.
