“Baha’i” in the news in Egypt

New Today, undated [June 18, 2014]

An Egyptian news website, New Today, has published a video of a television interview with Dr. Mohamed El-Saghir (الدكتور محمد الصغير) (pictured), a former advisor to the Minister of Awqaf, in which he claims that the television presenter Wael Ibrashi (وائل الإبراشي) is one of the most prominent Baha’is in the Arabic world. According to the learned doctor, one of his unnamed friends went to an unnamed country, visited a supposed Bahai temple, and found in it a list of the most important Bahais in the Arabic world. The name of Wael Ibrashi appeared on the list. Dr. El-Saghir emphasized that he personally stood behind this information.

Update:
The same report was posted previously on the Akhbar-Masriyah site, again without a date, and led to a sequence of unenlightening comments beginning on June 9. The first appearance of the video on You Tube, that I have found, was dated June 7.
