President does not wish to take credit for scholar’s achievements: Zuhair

Following complaints from Islamic NGO Salaf that the president’s address contained no information on Islamic achievements in the country, presidential spokesman Mohamed Zuhair has said the president did not wish to take credit for hard work done by Islamic scholars.

Zuhair told Miadhu that the president had not included the information in the address as he believed the both the credit and technical aspects of religious issues should be left to the scholars.

New freedoms to prepare sermons, funds for mosque construction, the creation of school prayer rooms and the Islamic fair were achievements led by the Islamic Ministry, Zuhair said.
