Misrepresentation of the Qur’an in an Egyptian school exam. The authorities respond: a typo


Social media users traded an examination paper in an Egyptian school, which includes distortion of the Holy Quran.

The pioneers of social networking sites said that the question paper that included this big mistake was in the Arabic language and calligraphy exam for the morning period at one of the Kom Hamada educational schools in Beheira Governorate, northwest of the Nile Delta.

The question asked the fifth primary class pupils to write a phrase that reads: “Egypt is the cradle of civilization and the place of God in his land.” It is not a Qur’anic verse, and the wrong question was asked by the students to write it twice, one in the naskh script and the other in the patch.

And users of communication sites expressed their dissatisfaction with the error in the exam, and they wondered about the reasons for not reviewing the exam before it was printed and distributed to students, and demanded that the one responsible be held accountable.

Egyptian media quoted the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Education in Beheira as saying that he had issued a decision referring the person responsible for the incident to investigation.

The official added that the Directorate’s Operations Room received a complaint of error as soon as the envelopes for the questions were opened, and that after investigating the incident it became clear that what happened was a typographical error, and that the entire matter is under investigation before the Directorate’s legal affairs.
