Pope Shenouda raises case against Dr. Zaghloul El-Naggar because of his rejection of Zakaria Boutros’ slurs against Islam!!
Pope Shenouda III, the Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of Saint Mark, together with 22 lawyers including Naguib Gobrail (head of the Egyptian Union for Human Rights and the legal advisor of the Coptic Church in Egypt) have raised a case against Dr. Zaghloul El-Naggar (head of the Chairman of Committee of Scientific Notions in the Qur’an in the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs) because of an appearance by him on Orbit’s “Al-Qahira Al-Youm” channel when he described Zakaria Boutros – who insulted the Prophet Mohamed PBUH – as “the big devil”!!!
During his appearance, Dr. El-Naggar also demanded that definitive action be taken against Zakaria Boutros and his continual claims about Islam and Muslims, and emphasised [the importance of] refuting his falsehoods and his slander of the Prophet’s companions and the fundamentals of the Islamic religion.
On his opinion of the case raised by Pope Shenouda, Dr El-Naggar denied the charges levelled against him, describing them as blind fanaticism that drives people to insult religion and the Prophet of Islam – PBUH – and his companions and raise cases against people who stand up against this mockery as he described it, pointing out that Zakaria Boutros betrayed his country and religion and the robes he wears when he is was insolent about Islam.
He added, “Boutros sold himself to the US intelligence services when he took upon himself to insult Islam publicly on a satellite channel funded from unknown sources, especially given that he provokes this criticism when he is not in the country”!
Dr. Zaghloul El-Naggar made clear that, “the insolence of some Copts against the master of created things Mohamed – PBUH – is a result of the authorities in Egypt supporting them unreservedly on the pretext of protecting the country from strife. They have forgotten that what they are doing is strife itself”.
