Cairo, March 21 - Egypt's Grand Imam of al-Azhar
and president of al-Azhar University, Ahmed el-Tayeb, sent a
message of congratulations to Pope Francis on Thursday hoping to
overcome a rift with the Catholic Church.
In the greeting the Sunni cleric hoped for "a world full of
cooperation and love to assure common values and to bring an end
to a culture of hate and inequality".
Al-Azhar University, a world-renowned center of Sunni
scholarship, cut off relations with the Holy See in 2011 in
opposition to comments made by Benedict XVI about violence
against Christians in Egypt.
An advisor to el-Tayeb told Catholic News Service on Monday
that the university was waiting for "positive signs" before
agreeing to resume dialogue with Rome.
