The Al-Azhar University of Cairo, leading theological authority within Sunni Islam, has announced that it was getting ready to launch a multilingual television channel to propagate a correct image of Islam and therefore fight against terrorism.

According to Grand Imam Ahmed el-Tayeb, it will be broadcasting within three months in German, English, Arab and French.

Since Hosni Moubarak’s resignation, Al-Azhar University has become politically independent again.
