The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) announced it will introduce a new legislation that penalises discrimination.
The law criminalises any acts that might lead to religious, ethnic or sex discrimination. Punishment would be at least up three months in jail.
Culprits that would be found guilty of any of these charges could also be fined from LE 50,000 to 100,000.
The law comes in the wake of mass protests from Egypt's Christians, who demonstrated to end the discrimination, violence and church-burnings they are constantly subject to. One of the latest marches was attacked on Sunday, 9 October, leaving at least 25 dead.
