Article summary: 

The Azhar's 11-item document, issued upon an initiative by Grand Shaykh of the Azhar Dr. Ahmad al-Tayīb, is pursuing a principle of open door to all intellectual, literary and political orientations, according to Dr. Mahmūd 'Azab, the director of the Azhar's Dialogue Center.

"The document's key objective is to deepen the Egyptian people's vision in the face of religious and political opportunism," said 'Azab in an interview to Watanī newspaper of July 10.

He pointed out that the Azhar, through this paper, is trying to strike a balance between the international human rights covenants and the Egyptian values and traditions.
