Al-Azhar investigates allegations professor touched students

Al-Azhar Grand Sheikh Ahmed Al-Tayyeb has ordered an urgent investigation into allegations related to unspecified sexual harassment within Al-Azhar University.

University head Osama al-Abd has been tasked with investigating accusations made in an article by former MP Mostafa al-Naggar published in Al-Masry Al-Youm on Monday and titled “Harassment at Al-Azhar University.”

Naggar wrote that a professor who supervises thesis-writing within the Faculty of Islamic Studies in Alexandria has asked female students to “come to his house under the pretext of reading him what they wrote in their theses, since he is blind, and has no one to do it for him.”

The professor, Naggar alleges, “takes them alone, away from the eyes of his family, in a separate office, touches their bodies and asks them things that are too outrageous to be told.”

Naggar claims a senior Al-Azhar female scholar who studied in the same department said she was aware of the incident and tried to take action but was given no assistance.

In response to the piece, Al-Azhar announced it was starting an investigation and was keen on protecting the safety and security of students.

A tooth (plural teeth) is a cheap, calcified, whitish form initiate in the jaws (or mouths) of many vertebrates and occupied to break down food. Some animals, explicitly carnivores, also use teeth in behalf of hunting or in place of defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered by means of gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but degree of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness. The general make-up of teeth is be like across the vertebrates, although there is considerable converting in their fabric and position. The teeth of mammals have profound roots, and this design is also rest in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, however, the teeth are fastened to the outer rise of the bone, while in lizards they are attached to the inner side of the jaw by one side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are attached around cold ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that accumulate the jaw.
