TV presenter Islam El-Behery has been referred to official complaints body for ‘questioning what is certain in religion’ and stirring sectarian strife
Egypt’s pre-eminent Sunni Islamic institute Al-Azhar took a swipe on Wednesday at TV presenter Islam El-Behery’s show for what it described as a fierce and elusive campaign against the foundations of Islam and Islamic legacy.
El-Behery, an Islamic researcher, has been providing his understanding of Islamic doctrine on his TV show and has stirred controversy for questioning the credibility of the sources of Prophet Muhammed’s sayings, a prime reference for Islamic teachings next to the Quran.
Al-Azhar filed a complaint to the General Body for Investment and Free Zones requesting for TV channels not to air El-Behery’s show, also saying it has known that the authority planned to send a warning to Al Qahera Wal Nas, the channel which airs his show.
El-Behery’s show, the Al Azhar statement says, deliberately makes people question what is certain in religion and that it threatens social peace. Al-Azhar also accused the show of stirring sectarian strife.
Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi has more than once called on Al-Azhar to fight what he labeled as faulty Islamic teachings and extremism, amid a crackdown against Islamists across the nation following the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013.
