CAIRO – 6 June 2022: Egypt's top Islamic authority, Al-Azhar, has vehemently denounced the derogatory remarks made by spokeswoman of India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on his Twitter account against the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his wife Aisha.

In a statement, Al-Azhar said that such remarks expose a conspicuous ignorance of the history of prophets and messengers who represent the epitome of sublime manners and high morals.

"This act by an irresponsible ignoramus is the very definition of terrorism," Al-Azhar said, warning that such act "may plunge the entire word in disastrous crises and grinding wars."

Urging the international community to take decisive action against such abusers, Al-Azhar deplored the desperate attempts by some of the politicians who resort to anti-Islamic rhetoric for electoral support.

The "civilized world" must be on the alert for those who exploit people's faith and supreme human values for political or electoral gain, Al-Azhar noted.
