Prominent Muslim Brotherhood member, Dr. Isam al-Iryan added that, “The Muslim Brotherhood is open for all Muslims, provided that they adhere to its internal rules and controls. The Muslim Brotherhood is a group that includes several generations, nearly eight generations, and not only the young and the old. Moreover, it is a group that is ideologically open, and allows diversity of viewpoints. Diversity does not lead to splits, especially as it (the Muslim Brotherhood) does not decide the jurisprudence options except with regard to the necessities on which actions are based, such as the political pluralism.”

Al-Iryan underscored that as far as the group is concerned, women’s rights are settled in favor of women, i.e. a woman has all the rights - this is indisputable - except the issue of the presidency of the state, which is not settled yet, and about which there are various opinions within the Muslim Brotherhood.

As for the principle of tolerance toward the others and religious freedom, they have been two of the original principles of the Muslim Brotherhood since the inception of the group until now. As far as we are concerned, the origin is that “there is no coercion in religion,” and there is no dispute over this principle within the group.    »»» Asharq Alawsat Newspaper (English)
