Al-Azhar Warns Against Calls to Raise Quran Copies During Protests

Al-Azhar said on Thursday calls to raise copies of the Holy Quran protests slated for November 28th are meant to revive sedition.

In a statement, Al-Azhar warned that bringing copies of the Holy Quran to the protests is an act of “religion abuse” and a way to deceive Muslims under the cloak of Sharia and religion.

The statement asserted that such a move is considered sedition fomented by the religion traders who tarnished the image of Islam.

In the same context, a number of senior scholars in Al-Azhar and Awqaf ministry delivered Friday sermons about the “destructive calls and how to confront them” to warn citizens against the malicious calls to hold demonstrations s raising copies of the Holy Quran.
