Senior Muslim scholar Shaikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi has described the prison sentence given to Egypt's first freely-elected President, Mohamed Morsi, as "unjust", has reported. It was, he added, a "political" judgement.

Morsi has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for his alleged involvement in the killing of two Egyptians in what is known as Al-Itihadiyyah incident. In fact, eight of his own supporters were killed on that day and his guards did not discharge their weapons even while protestors were attacking the presidential palace.

  • Describing the judges as having no sense of justice or any conscience, Shaikh Al-Qaradawi said that the number of unjust decisions by the Egyptian judiciary is on the increase. "The sword of the judiciary is still hanging over the citizens who protected the country," he said in a public statement. The man responsible for killing thousands of Egyptian citizens in Rabi Al-Adawiyya and Al-Nahda Squares, Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, is still free to kill and has not been brought to account, noted Al-Qaradawi.

He pointed out that Morsi, who refused to move from his rented apartment to the presidential palace when he was elected president and did not accept any salary, is behind bars, while Hosni Mubarak, his sons, his ministers and all of his aides have been set free despite their well-known crimes and corruption.

"Day after day," said Shaikh Al-Qaradawi, "the Egyptian judiciary proves that it is politicised. With its unjust rulings, it has lost all of its trust." Although the judiciary is but one of the three great institutions of state, the whole country is run by the military, he added.

The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allah's Law).

Prophet Mohammad PBUH

Narrated: Abu Huraira (R.A) that a man said to the Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam: "Advise me! "The Prophet (PBUH) said, "Do not become angry and furious."
