Muslim Brotherhood: Egyptian People Condemn Coup against Elected President
Muslim Brotherhood: Egyptian People Condemn Coup against Elected President
Although it accepts that acting as an opposition is a constitutional right for all citizens, the Muslim Brotherhood denounces use of violence and thuggery under any pretext.
Friday, June 21,2013 14:42

In a press statement, Dr. Abdul-Rahman Al-Barr, Dean of the Faculty of Theology at Al-Azhar University in Mansoura and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Guidance Bureau, said: "The principle of ‘political opposition’ is well-known and well-accepted in the history of Islam. However, a coup against a president who was elected by the people is reprehensible.

"Meanwhile, the opposition’s use of weapons and thuggery must be dealt with and stopped by the competent State authorities. Use of arms to express an opinion or even to simply threaten others is totally unacceptable, since 'it is not permissible for a Muslim to frighten another Muslim' in any way at all, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) said."

Dr. Barr further pointed that, "Political opposition was known since the time of the Caliphs. Anyone who had something to say expressed his point of view by giving advice, offering insights, and seeking the fittest and the best solutions. Nobody, however, carried arms to bring down the regime or block roads."
