The Grand Mufti of Egypt Condemned the Horrendous Assault on Dr. Ali Gomaa

Dr. Shawqi Allam -the Grand Mufti of Egypt- condemned the verbal assault directed by a group of Cairo university students against Dr. Ali Gomaa, the former Grand Mufti of Egypt and member of the Supreme Council of Islamic Scholars, during a thesis defense seminar at The Faculty of Dar al-Ulum.

In a statement, the Grand mufti said, “This incident is considered an unacceptable assault against an Azhari luminary who is known for his knowledge and righteousness and who has made great achievements in Dar al-Iftaa during his tenure as Grand Mufti of Egypt. He emphasized that the scholars of Al-Azhar in general and its key figures in particular must be respected and honored due to the trust they carry from God and the legacy of the Master of messengers [peace and blessings be upon him] because scholars are the inheritors of the Prophets.
