Terrorists do not represent Islam: Egypt’s Grand Mufti

Egypt’s Grand Mufti has rejected what he described as “generalized” perceptions that link terrorism to Islam.
“Islam is totally innocent of terrorism and terrorists’ actions,” Shawqy Allam said during a seminar at the Cairo International Book Fair on Tuesday, stressing that terrorism and extremism should be studied by “scientific bodies” in order to define their root causes.
He said Al-Azhar, Egypt’s and the Islamic World’s top religious academy, promotes moderation and has engaged in several activities addressing the West on Islam’s opposition to bloodshed.
