Dialogue is the way to ease tension between Azhar and Endowment Ministry, MP

 MP Amr Hamroush proposed to invite representatives of both Egypt’s Endowment Ministry and Muslim Senior Scholars for an open dialogue over the controversial written sermons at the House of Representatives, Youm7 reported on Friday.

 
The proposal comes after the clash erupted recently between the ministry and the major Islamic institution, as Azhar refused the decision taken by the ministry force the preachers to read written sermons. Muslim Senior Scholars described the decision as suspending to the religious discourse.
 
The ministry, on its hand, insists on implementing the decision. It considers the step as the way to undermine the attempts adopted by extremist preachers to spread their ideas among Muslims.
 
Hamroush stressed, in a statement, that the only way to resolve this controversy is to conduct an open dialogue between the two parties to pave the way for a compromise, saying that his proposal aims to ease the current tension.
