Grand Imam of Al Azhar: Attacking the church was wrong

Sheikh Muhammad Sayed Tantawi, the Grand Imam of Al Azhar told "Al Masry Al Youm" Egyptian newspaper that he met with H. H. Pope Shenouda III in an attempt to contain the situation in Alexandria, and added "This incident is pre-planned, and certain groups are behind it attempting to cause sectarian tensions and violence" . Tantawi also affirmed" Attacking the church was wrong, it is everyone's duty to reaffirm that we are brethren living in the same country".

Criticizing the Muslim Brotherhood group, the Grand Imam said " I hope that the Muslim brotherhood group would stay out of it in order to avoid the deterioration of the situation"

Tantawi is known for his moderation and is constantly criticized by some Egyptian newspapers known for their incitement against the West and non-Muslims in general.

I am sad for what is happening in Egypt. Satan is doing his best to disturb the Copts Peace, but he will fail. We need to pray ato our Lord and ask help and assistance of all our brother in Christ all over the World. I may have nothing to do than to sit and ask my Lord to be with us these difficult moments.
