On 3rd May 2009, the Front of Al Azhar’s Scientists issued a press release entitled “Pigs are killing hearts” which was about the issue of the Swine Flue.

This press release ignored the practical, medical and environmental rules and it launched an attack which was an inciting speech that should not have been issued by religious people. This press release said that human rights activists are aggressor who are worst than Pharaoh and they are the reason for the crisis in Egypt.
