MB chairman thanks all who intervened to end sectarian strife

The Muslim Brotherhood’s chairman, Dr. Mohamed Badie, has offered his sincere thanks to all those who intervened to put out the fire of sectarian sedition witnessed earlier this week in Sol, South Cairo which resulted in 13 fatalities and 140 gunfire injuries.

In a statement Badie supported Many Egyptians’ beliefs that sectarian violence was being fanned by remnants of the deposed Mubarak regime to undermine the success of the People’s revolution which succeeded in toppling the dictator.

He added that the plot was a slack scheme by the few remaining Mubarak cronies and loyalists who played the sectarian card to downplay the evident unity between Muslims and Christians witnessed worldwide where religious and ideological differences were set aside and replaced with patriotism and mutual respect.

Badie expressed his appreciation to the group of Egyptian celebrities including politicians, clerics and businessmen who travelled to Sol, to lend their support to stopping the sectarian tension and called on all to ignore the hidden hand which threatened to burn Egypt’s unity and restrain from violence.

Badie was optimistic that things would gradually calm down and expressed his gratitude to the Military forces led by Commander Hassan al-Ruwaini, other officers and soldiers for their role in responding to this sedition.

He stressed although security instability is a natural outcome following the ousting of the former regime and its leader we all must do what we can so that this phase does not last long.

Badie ended his statement thanking the people of the village of Sol for their response to end violence and called on them to ignore any attempts to disrupt Egypt’s peace and unity.
