Egypt: Whose Brand of Islam Will Prevail?
There may be no country in the world right now with a more volatile relationship between religion and government than Egypt. Most Egyptians are Sunni Muslim. And most say the government should play a role in religious life - just how much is an open question. The now-deposed Islamist President, Mohamed Morsi, offered one answer, but critics say he went too far in blurring the lines between religion and state. 

Now the new military-backed government is promoting its own brand of religious thought, mainly through a Sunni Muslim institution called Al-Azhar University (pictured.)
