Dr. Ali Gomaa, the Grand Mufti of Egypt wanted Turkish entrepreneurs to open at least 10 schools in Egypt. Dr. Gomaa attended the opening ceremony of the second Turkish School of Egypt, located in the city of Beni Suwaif, in southern Cairo. He remarked the students in these Turkish schools learn English perfectly.

He mentioned that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) encouraged Muslims to learn foreign languages. He said: “Top-notch education is the most important need for our offsprings who would be entrusted with the country’s future.”

Murad Ramadan, a businessman who donated the school building to Turkish entrepreneurs, mentioned how he was impressed with the devotion of the school principal and the teachers. The Principal and the teachers of the school voluntarily cleaned the entire school building throughout the night until the morning after construction ended. He underlined their spirit and positive action, which he hopes would bring success to the school in the first place.

Mustafa Ozcan, the director of the board of trustees of Salahaldin Turkish Schools in Egypt, said that opening a factory could be important for a country but the best investment for the future would be an investment towards quality education.

The language of instruction in the Turkish schools is Arabic and English, and the 3 new schools in Beni Suwaif have about 300 students at the moment. There is already a great interest in both schools.

Rather than reading these protests as a public expression of discomfort — and taking the recent corruption charges seriously before declaring them a conspiracy against the government by the rival Gulen movement — the government is currently pushing legislation within parliament that will not only abolish the separation between the judiciary and the executive but which will completely consolidate the judicial and executive powers at the hands of the government.
