Over the last two days Imbaba in Cairo has witnessed a spiraling wave of sedition and sectarian strife bearing down on Muslims and Copts alike which resulted in needless deaths, injuries and destruction.
It is on this note that the Muslim Brotherhood denounces any efforts by extremists both Muslims and Copts and counter-revolutionaries who endeavor to spoil the gains of the revolution by failing to put the nation ahead of individual comforts.
Unfortunately, these reckless people are behaving in a way which defeats the successes of the revolution and delays the progress and advancement of Egypt by deviating from the right path of the revolution.
These continued actions by unpatriotic people will sow dissension, and incite violence, aimed at wrecking the unity and cohesion of compatriots.
It is on this note that we, the MB, call for an immediate investigation and holding those responsible accountable. We fully support the decision made by the military to put those responsible to military trial so that they may eradicate such actions and prevent the spread of sabotage.
Furthermore, the MB believes that the parliamentary elections should remain as scheduled in order to bring about some sort of normality to the country and call on all responsible to disregard attempts by certain individuals whose benefits lie in the disruption of Egypt’s stability.
While we fully acknowledge the efforts by the military, we call for the peaceful and democratic transition of power and the respect of the people’s will through free, fair and transparent elections.
