Ahmed Aref: Muslim Brotherhood Committed to Peaceful Protest, Self-Restraint
Ahmed Aref, Muslim Brotherhood Media Spokesman, reaffirmed the group’s full commitment to peaceful demonstrations and restraint and that it will not be drawn into violence.
In his speech at a press conference organized by the ‘National Alliance in Support of Electoral Legitimacy’ (NASEL) in Rabaa Al-Adaweya square Thursday, Aref demanded all state institutions must bear their respective responsibilities to secure the demonstrations tomorrow (Friday).
Aref further condemned the brutal police state which has resumed repressive practices, arresting leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood, shutting down Islamist TV channels, and storming the offices of TV satellite channel ‘Al-Jazeera Live Egypt’ – practices which drag Egypt back to the era of tyranny, dictatorship and corruption, which Egyptians suffered for decades in the era of ousted president Hosni Mubarak.
