Egypt's Grand Mufti strongly condemns terror attack on Coptic citizens in Upper Egypt's Minya

 Friday, November 2, 2018
The Grand Mufti of Egypt, Dr. Shawki Allam, vehemently condemned the heinous terror attack on a bus carrying Coptic citizens near the Monastery of Saint Samuel the Confessor in Upper Egypt's Minya on Friday causing tens of casualties.

"Attacking secure civilians is prohibited in Shari'ah and the Prophet (peace be upon him) considered it an act of treachery," Dr. Allam said in a press release.

The Grand Mufti expressed his deepest condolences to the victims' families, wished the injured a speedy recovery and prayed to God to protect Egypt and its great people and keep them safe, secured and united in face of all atrocities.
