The deputy of Egypt’s al-Azhar Sunni Islamic Center said the center is ready to send ‘moderate’ preachers and prayers leaders to France.
Abbas Shouman said they could help to combat extremists, al Hurra Arab news reported.
He also said the ideology of the Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group should be analyzed in order to fight the group.
Shouman said combating Daesh requires intellectual and cultural efforts as well as security measures.
“Before the Paris attacks, al-Azhar had told French authorities that there need to be moderate preachers and prayer leaders in the country,” he went on to say.
A series of coordinated terrorist attacks in and around the French capital left at least 150 people dead and some 200 others injured on Friday night.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, which have drawn worldwide condemnations.
