TEHRAN (IQNA) – Activists and political figures in Egypt have condemned an order by President Abdul Fattah el-Sisi on removal of Quran verses and Hadiths from some school books.


According to Arabi21 website, the Egyptian president has made the move under the pretext of countering extremism.

He has ordered that verses of the Quran and Hadiths be removed from history and Arabic language books in schools.

They will only remain in religious teachings books.

Critics and activists accuse el-Sisi of trying to eliminate Egypt’s Islamic identity through such moves.

He is not going to revive and renovate religious discourse in the country as he claims, they say, but he is rather trying to remove the religion from the society entirely.

They say people of Egypt should rise up against decisions that undermine the country’s Islamic identity and structure.
