Constitution is not against religion: Al-Azhar legal advisor

CAIRO: Mohamed Abdel Salam, legal advisor to the Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar, said he did not participate in drafting a constitution that is against religion, adding that people who think that the new constitution is against religion are delusional.

Salam also said in an interview with the MBC Masr channel that the text of the constitution is integrated and tight. He said many people are misinformed in thinking that a civil state means a secular state.
 
He also said he appreciates the role that the Nour Party played in the 50-member committee saying, the party “had a major” role, “unlike what was said in media.”
