The Muslim Brotherhood has condemned as “corrupt and politically motivated” an Egyptian court order banning all its activities.
The group of Egypt’s ousted President Mohamed Morsi said on Monday that it " will always be present on the ground even after it is dissolved. "
" The Muslim Brotherhood is part and parcel of Egyptian society. Corrupt and politically motivated judicial decisions cannot change that, " the group said.
Judicial sources reported on Monday that an administrative court in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, banned all activities of the Muslim Brotherhood as a non-governmental organization. The court ruling includes seizure of Brotherhood funds, assets and headquarters. Many believe the ruling paves the way for the army to arrest more pro-Muslim Brotherhood protesters. The Muslim Brotherhood Society was founded earlier this year as an NGO. Former Brotherhood leader, Mohammed Mahdi Akef, has been its chairman. The society's leaders are not all from the Muslim Brotherhood or its Freedom and Justice Party. The Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party won parliamentary and presidential elections after the country's dictator, Hosni Mubarak, was overthrown in 2011 revolution.
