Islam، Christianity religions of mercy, love - Grand Imam
Islam is the religion of mercy، while Christianity is the religion of love and they are both cooperating for building a world full of tolerance، peace and dialogue، state-run news agency MENA quoted Al Azhar Grand Imam Dr Ahmed el Tayyeb.
What is happening nowadays is a sort of terrorism that aims to kill Muslims، the same as it does with Christians، he added.
Tayyeb's remarks were made on the sidelines of his meeting on Wednesday with representatives of the eastern churches in Australia and New Zealand، currently visiting Cairo.
The Grand Sheikh expressed thanks to the delegation members for their visit that was meant to extend condolences over the Egyptian victims who lost their lives in Minya terrorist attack last week.
