Egypt’s al-Azhar Denounces French Call to Omit Verses of The Quran.

Several French figures, including former president Nicolas Sarkozy and former prime minister Manuel Valls, published an open-letter French Daily Le Parisien urging omitting verses of the Quran calling for the “murder and punishment of Jews, Christians and disbelievers” to be removed.

In response, Al-Azhar University’s deputy during a sermon on Saturday said that the Quran does not call for murder but it calls for fighting back against hostile people instead. He asserted that the verses in the Quran in question regarding fighting are all referring to defense of oneself in cases of being attacked and not to attack others.
