South AsiaAl-Azhar University condemns BJP leaders’ derogatory remarks

CAIRO, Egypt: Egypt’s Al-Azhar al-Sharif, one of the world’s oldest seats of Muslim learning, has issued a statement condemning remarks made by Bharatiya Janata Party spokespersons against Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him), Kashmir Media Service (KMS) reported.

Al-Azhar noted that the BJP leaders’ statements were “ridiculous” and had claims which “every hater of Islam and Muslims repeats from time to time”.


“Al-Azhar stressed that what some political officials resort to recently about insulting Islam and its noble Prophet, the prophet of chastity, literature and purity, to win the support of votes in party elections, and inflame the feelings of their followers against Muslims – is an explicit invitation to extremism and spreading hatred and sedition among followers of different religions and beliefs,” it said.

The statement noted that the remarks of the “ignorant Indian” could only emanate from “advocates of extremism and supporters of hatred and sedition and enemies of the policy of dialogue between followers of different faiths, civilizations and culture”.
