Senior Islamic scholar Qaradawi resigns from Al-Azhar ~ World Bulletin / News Desk.

Yusuf Al-Qaradawi has been an outspoken critic of Morsi’s ouster and repeatedly chastised Egypt’s new military-backed rulers. 

Prominent Egyptian-born Muslim scholar Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi has resigned from Al-Azhar’s Senior Scholars Council, the prestigious Cairo-based religious institution’s most authoritative body.
