Al-Azhar criticizes West over curbing Muslims freedom
Al-Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed el-Tayyeb criticized on Wednesday 6/2/2013 the West over curbing the freedom of Muslim minorities living there while other minorities are enjoying full freedom.
El-Tayyeb denounced a ban imposed by major European countries on wearing hijab. He said such moves run counter to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The Grand Imam made his comments during talks with Britain’s Minister for Faith and Communities Sayeeda Hussain Warsi.
