On the occasion of the new Hijiri Year 1444, which started last week, the Tora Correction and Rehabilitation Centre held a religious lecture given by prominent Islamic religious clerks and attended by tens of inmates - including men and women, the Ministry of Interior announced on Friday.



Prominent Sheikhs and Islamic Scholars from Al-Azhar and the Ministry of Religious Endowment who led the event discussed several religious issues as well as ways to correct some religious misconceptions.

The inmates also asked various questions about religion during a Q&A segment.

An inmate qoir also performed religious songs.

Prominent Al-Azhar scholar and Sheikh Ramadan Abdel-Moez  praised the efforts of the ministry's Social Protection Sector, which supervises correctional centres, in organising such lectures, stressing they play an important role in reshaping and rehabilitate the inmates to become productive members of society after serving their sentences.
