A number of Suffi leaders have condemned the high- handedness of the State Security in arresting the high ranking leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood Leaders in Egypt accusing the ruling regime of adopting “double standards” over such issues. It seems that the ruling regime is at a loss they are either banned or not banned referring to the 88 seats acquired by the MB members in parliament

 Sheik Mohamed Abdul Khaleq Shabrawy added that the MB have enjoyed much popularity in the Egyptian street and abroad and are respected by all political movements and trends. He pointed out that they are renowned for their peaceful approach and police should not have behaved in such an inhuman manner as to haul these respectable men during their pre-dawn raids. "Some of these men are not well. They should have shown greater sensitivity".

Chairman of the International Suffi Committee Sheik Mohamed Shahawy also criticized the arrests underscoring that the Brotherhood members have always promoted peaceful reform and tolerance and the terrorism and violence allegations are far from the brotherhoods principles. He condemned the raids on their houses adding their were more civilized methods alleging that they were vindictive in nature even if the detainees were guilty of the accusations. 

The Suffi leaders told presspersons “it is unfortunate. This is not democracy and even criminals are not treated like this, a fair and transparent trial should be held and by the competent judges and jurists with the appropriate evidences revealed and set out for all to see and not behind closed doors".

The State Security apparatus has arrested large numbers of the MB top leaders in a deplorable manner in which the members of the brotherhood have become accustomed to, and this is a deplorable act and all those who fight for democracy should unite and condemn this act

The Suffi leaders all agreed that the arrests could only be described as an “indecent act of political vendetta” which was not only inhuman but also shameful for democracy in which Egypt 's ruling regime boasts of. Adding that in a democratic system, a responsible Government should not resort to vindictive action

Who did care about Democracy? Abu Muhammad El-Merbawiy, MY
It's very sad to hear that Egypt Government arrested MB top Leaders worrying on their influences in Egypt New political changes. In the name of Democracy, they blocked the human right to exhibit the real process of Democracy in Egypt in such a very conservative political games as displayed in previous decades. why didn't people restore a such plain Democracy to be taken part in Egypt for the interest of all citizens of the Muslim State of Democratic government. Be transparent or other wise it could be shamed of you... Allah never change the condition of any Nations, unless you yourself might change "YOUR SELF" - in other words, the psychological of human soul or human soul. Dungun MY
