A spiritual view of Egypt in transition
Originally appeared on spirituality.com
For most Egyptians, and for many global onlookers, the aftermath of Hosni Mubarak’s resignation as Egypt’s president has been an ecstatic moment akin to the falling of the Berlin Wall. TV and radio broadcasters are having a field day capturing a momentous historical event. Social media such as Twitter and Facebook are abuzz with celebrations, from all corners of the world.
Into that fray of emotion stepped a very calm-headed Moez Masoud, a popular Cairo host of English and Arabic broadcasts about Islam, who has been a stalwart of the protests. And in an interview with the BBC directly following Mubarak’s announcement, Masoud wanted to talk about the spirituality of the Egyptian people.
