Attacks on worshippers and mosques are an attack on Islam, said the Preachers’ Syndicate in a Monday press conference. Syndicate head Gamal Abdel Sattar insisted that the attacks on mosques were not isolated incidents, but were systematic in nature.
Abdel Sattar confirmed that his syndicate had received reports of attacks on imams across the country, including in Alexandria, Cairo, and Mahalla.
He called on Al-Azhar to issue fatwas condemning such acts, asserting that any attack on any place of worship was completely unacceptable.
