PARIS – Chairman of the Middle East Center for Studies in Paris (CEMO) Abdel Rahim Ali said Monday that 18th century scholar Abdelghani al-Nabulsi issued great and moderated edicts on music and singing.
Al-Nabulsi, he said, allowed music, singing and all forms of art. He added that this contrasted the prohibition of the arts by the Muslim Brotherhood and its supporters.
He added at a conference organized by the Center for Middle East Studies (CEMO) in French capital Paris on the dangers posed by the thinking of the Muslim Brotherhood on Western societies and values that the Brotherhood views women negatively.
They believe, he said, that women should be beaten at home. All Brotherhood members have the same vision about women.
Titled “The Danger of Muslim Brotherhood’s Thoughts on Western Values”, the conference is attended by the members of CEMO’s Consulting Committee.
Those attending included international counterterrorism experts Roland Jacquard and Richard Labeviere.
They also included journalists Atmane Tazaghart and Ian Hamel, who are focused on covering terrorist and takfiri groups.
A host of Arab and European public figures is also attending the event.
