Al-Azhar Strongly Rejects an Indian Official's Statement Abusing Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and Lady Aisha
Al-Azhar: Insulting Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his wives is but impoliteness and blatant ignorance of Comparative Religions and the History of Prophets and Messengers
Al-Azhar expresses its strong condemnation and denunciation of the blunt and disrespectful statements against Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his purified wife, Lady Aisha, tweeted by the official spokesperson of the Indian Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on his official page. Al-Azhar stresses that this statement revealed blatant ignorance of the history of Prophets and Messengers, who represent the highest level of morals, virtues and morals and who were protected by Allah, the Almighty, from falling into vices or committing any sins – minor or major.
Al-Azhar considers what this ignorant reckless official said about great humanitarian figures as frequently repeated absurdity by those who hold a grudge against Islam and Muslims, reaffirming meanwhile that this act represents a real form of terrorism that could lead the whole world to deadly crises and devastating wars. Therefore, the international community must firmly and strongly respond to such abusers to put an end to the risks they pose.
Fully aware of the inclination of some political officials to insult Islam and the honorable, chaste and pure Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) to win votes in party elections and fan resentment among their followers against Muslims, Al-Azhar views such acts as an explicit call to provoking extremism, hatred and sedition among followers of different religions, stressing that this is the behavior of the advocates of extremism, supporters of hatred and sedition and enemies of the policy of dialogue between followers of different religions, civilizations and cultures.
Al-Azhar re-emphasizes that the civilized world must fulminate against those who abuse religions and lofty humanitarian values in ballot boxes and political circles.
