TEHRAN (IQNA) – A member of the Egyptian Parliament has called on the country’s prime minister to explain and deal with the misusing of the Holy Quran for advertising an unlicensed medicine in TV channels.

Ayman Abul-Ela, Deputy Chairman of the Human Rights Committee in the Parliament, has called for Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly’s briefing about the controversial ads in some satellite channels that are violating the laws.

Despite existing laws on regulating health products and services passed in 2017, misleading ads are still being released, he lamented, adding that some of the ads have recently used the Holy Quran to convince them of the effectiveness of the medical products.

In one instance, he continued, a person holds the Quran in his hand and swears that his recovery from diabetes was because of the advertised medicine.

Such incidents pose a great danger as they threaten the health of the people and promote exploiting the Holy Quran.
