Egyptian Islamist preacher Safwat Hijazi has voiced objection to a tourism agreement with Iran, expressing fear that Ayatollah’s regime in Tehran might be sending Shiite missionaries disguised as tourists.
Hijazi told Al Arabiya in an interview aired Monday that Iran tends to “stir problems wherever it exists” like Iran and Syria. He pointed out that since the Islamic Revolution, the Ayatollah’s regime in Tehran has sought to disseminate the Shiite doctrine, especially among the Sunnis.
The World Federation of Muslim Scholars allegedly has a report about Muslims joining Shi'ism in Sunni Islamic countries and the role Iran has played in converting them, said an Egyptian preacher who recently slammed Egypt’s tourism agreement with Iran.
Hijazi said say country's interference in another country and attempts to spread a new religion or tries to convert its people to adopt a new religion, this is considered an assault over against another country.
Iran has a sect that it defends and follows a “false doctrine,” considered to be "Kufr" , Hijazi said. “It aims to return the Old Persian Empire.”
Hijazi added that Iranian tourists will not go to Egypt to visit the country and enjoy what it has to offer but they will go to spread the religious doctrine.
