CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian authorities will bar 55,000 unlicensed clerics from preaching in mosques in the latest move against sympathisers of deposed Islamist President Mohamed Mursi, the minister of religious endowments said on Tuesday.
Egyptian authorities have been cracking down on Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood since the army toppled him on July 3 following mass protests against his rule.
Minister of Endowments Mohamed Mokhtar Gomaa said the clerics lack licenses to preach and were considered to be fundamentalist and a threat to the Egypt's security.
The ban will mainly target small unlicensed mosques or random praying areas. The idea is to spread a moderate message of Islam and keep Egyptians away from radical ideas.

Totally unrealistic. Some guy is preaching in a shack somewhere in the slums, how you gonna stop him?
The anti-radical changes in Egypt must have President O’Bozo surly, pouting and kicking his dogs all over the White House.
But ya gotta hand it to the Generals.
They’re gonna squeeze those Muslim Brothers until they squeal like the little pigs they are.
Civil liberties be damned. But hey! You’ve got the Military with no Civil Liberties, or the Muslim Brothers with no Civil Liberties.
At least the Military will not metastasize across the muslim world.
This is why bath house wants us to help out his muslim brotherhood.
