It was a show of shame recently when two guests on Egyptian television battled and hurled abuses at each other, over Islamic religious law.
The tow imams, Sheikh Mustafa Rashed and Nabih Al-Wahsh physically attacked each other with a studio chair and shoe. The brawl was transmitted live on Egypt’s LTC TV after the duo had some disagreement over the use of headscarves.
Sheikh Mustafa is a Muslim legal expert while Nabih Al-Wahsh is an Egyptian lawyer. Sheikh got Al-Wahsh visibly angry after he said the headscarf was a cultural tradition and not a religious duty.
“You said you were the Mufti of Australia and a scholar in Sydney, but there’s not even a mosque in Sydney,” Al-Wahsh tackled Sheik. Al-Wahsh continued, saying that Al-Azhar, a prestigious Cairo university, had issued a statement saying that Rashed was not a scholar. To reply Al-Wahsh, Rashed said Al-Wahsh needs to go to a mental hospital. “You belong in a mental hospital,” he shouted.

However, when the attack became physical, the show’s host cuts off the transmission and went on a break. He later returned to air the “freestyle wrestling” match that had taken place on the show’s set while the transmission was off. Rashed was seen in the video hurling a studio chair at Al-Wahsh’s head, while Al-Wahsh removed a shoe, and struck Rashed repeatedly.
Cameramen rushed to the set to separate the two men, whose argument had broken a glass table and trashed the set. “I did not see this coming. I’ve been working in media for over 20 years, and I’ve never seen a dialogue between two guests deteriorate to the point of physical violence. I could never have imagined that such a thing could happen on my show. Words were said that should never have been uttered,” he said. the show’s host Mohamed Al-Ghiety said. See the video below:
