Egyptian Muslim preacher to lead Danish conference

FT.com / World / Middle East & Africa - Egyptian Muslim preacher to lead Danish conference: "But the initiative by Amr Khaled, who is taking several prominent religious figures and a group of Muslim youths to Copenhagen to raise awareness about the Prophet, has exposed rifts between Muslim scholars.
Sheikh Youssef Qardawi, the Qatar-based cleric with a large following in the Middle East, has criticised the Khaled-sponsored conference opening on Thursday and is preparing a competing event in Bahrain next week to highlight Muslim anger over the cartoons."
