Morsi puts Qaradawi at Al Azhar

Are these events related?

The Qatar-based Egyptian Islamic preacher Youssef Qaradawi has called on Egyptians to participate and vote ‘yes’ in the constitutional referendum set on Saturday, Turkish news agency Anadolu reported on Friday.

Qaradawi, who heads the International Union of Muslim Scholars, said during the Friday prayer’s speech that voting ‘no’ in the awaited polling in Egypt will cost the country a ‘big loss’ as the attraction of investments will be hampered especially, $20 billion from Qatar.

From here.

Breaking news (from here)

” A hardline Islamist preacher who was banned from entry into Britain will lead President Morsi’s attempt to strengthen Islamist control of al-Azhar, the ancient Islamic university in Cairo that influences the thoughts of Sunni Muslims around the world.

Hat-tip DT.

  1. I wonder will we get a comment from Livingstone on this. Although Al Qaradawi was banned from Britain his newrness still invited him despite Al Qaradawi’s calls for the genital mutilation of girls, the killing of gays and apostates and the destruction of Israel he still got an invite from Ken.

    Livingstone also invited the banned black American racist and anti semite Louis Farrakhan at the instigation of his police and “equalities” adviser Lee Jasper. Red Ken seems to have a thing about what he would no doubt call oppressed minorities like Al Qaradawi and Farrakhan.
