Extremist Salafists in Egypt unanimously decided to refuse talks with Habib Ali Al jifri in CBC Channel discussion. The discussion program with Habib Ali Jifri (amant.tv) was anchored by Khairy Ramadan and hosted leaders of various sections of the society belonging to different walks of life in a move to spread the message of religious tolerance, mutual cooperation and social harmony. After receiving formal invitation from the channel, Salfists leaders met together and settle on a total refusal.
Since long time ago, Habib Ali Al Jifri has been calling so called Salfists for serious dialogue especially after the release of a notorious audio of forged debate named “Peaceful Debate With Jifri=حوار هادئ مع الجفري “ made up of cropped clips from Habib Ali Jifri’s speech attaching their hapless replies to them. see (al7war .net )Once they have got an opportunity to talk directly and expose the reality they have simply withdrawn!
I have had personal experiences of this kind of people running away from scholars as they have neither answers to the questions nor proofs for their claims.
