Muslim Brotherhood Secretary-General: Civil Disobedience Unacceptable Now, Peaceful Protests Suffice
Dr. Mahmoud Hussein, Secretary General of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), asserted that the group does not support calls for civil disobedience on Saturday, February 11, and urged all Egyptians to double their work efforts and positive endeavors to help build, not destroy, the homeland, and so not to take part in this strike.
In a press statement, Hussein said, “This is very dangerous to the interests of the homeland and its future. It means a general strike that will stop the railway service and virtually all transport, factories, institutions, universities and schools, and will stop payment of monies owed to the government (taxes – electricity, water and gas bills). He pointed out that all this would exacerbate the already difficult situation in the country (economic, social and services). This will lead to the state’s disintegration and downfall.
