Fulbrighters Hear Presentation on Human Rights in Islam
On November 8 Dr. Ibrahim Negm, Senior Advisor to Sheikh Ali Gomaa, the Grand Mufti of Egypt, spoke to 20 American Fulbrighters on “Human Rights in Islam.” Dr. Ibrahim’s remarks were well received. He “came across as a very intelligent, knowledgeable, and wise scholar-teacher,” said one Fulbrighter. “I was also very impressed with him for delivering a confident, eloquent, and extemporaneous presentation in flawless English.” Said another: “Wonderful … clearly presented, very interesting and informed presentation. I learned a great deal.” And a third Fulbrighter remarked: “Excellent insight into Islamic thinking and how it is communicated to the mass audience.”
The seminar was arranged by the Commission’s Cultural and Educational Program, which sponsors site visits, lectures, and other activities to help its American grantees understand Egypt and its culture. The Commission is grateful to Dr. Ibrahim.
