FILE - In this Dec. 1, 2015 file photo, Egyptian Al-Azhar students wait for Sheikh Ahmed el-Tayeb, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, to deliver a speech, at Cairo University, Egypt. Egypt is embroiled in a blistering political feud over who speaks for Islam and how to bring reforms to counter Islamic militancy. At the center of it is Al-Azhar, one of the top institutions of clerics in the Muslim world and considered the bastion of moderate Islam. Critics, including Egypt’s pro-government, say it is too tied down in old ways and failing to modernize its teachings, fueling extremism. (AP Photo/Nariman El-Mofty, File)
