Dr. Pipes,

I came across this interesting video of Professor Amna Nusair of al-Azhar University where she claims that 4 million Egyptians have "left" (read this as apostatized) Islam!


This is confirmed in an article (dated 9/16/2020) in Almasryalyoum and here is the link


And here is her wikipedia page


What does this mean? I cannot draw any conclusions because the so called "scholars" at al-Azhar university are not trained in critical thinking. So the claim could be true or the good professor is making things up.
