Former Parliament Chairman: the Brotherhood’s Success is Logical
Former parliament chairman, Sofy Abu Taleb, said in an interview with Al-Mesry Al-Youm on Jan. 25th that the Muslim Brotherhood’s victory at the recent parliamentary polls is logical and should have been achieved long time age.
In addition, Abu Talab criticized the ’unjustified’ panic of secularists over the Brotherhood’s success. In his opinion, it is preferable to cast legality over the group allowing it to move publicly instead of acting secretly, due to its official ban.
He lashed out at the bids of enfeebling the Islamist current in general; drawing attention to the fact that Islam is the official religion of the country, therefore, we may disagree on the mechanism of applying Islam, whether moderate or extremist, not to reject the application of Islam itself.
