Muslim Brotherhood Statement to the People Refutes Recent Media Lies
Recently, dubious media outlets, as well as certain individuals on social networks, have been endeavoring to tarnish the image of the Muslim Brotherhood and its leaders, by altering or falsifying the group’s statements or declared stances, in desperate attempts to drive a wedge between the group and its leadership, or between the group and the great Egyptian people, although the group has always affirmed and reaffirmed its constants and positions – standing firm for the martyrs’ rights, the aspirations and hopes of the Egyptian people and the principles and objectives of the January 25, 2011 Revolution. The group’s positions are inspired by the resilience of the courageous men and women of the 2011 Revolution in streets and squares across the homeland, and the steadfastness of detainees behind bars.
We have stated this on many occasions already, and we reiterate it all today: No compromise on legitimacy or the rights of the martyrs and the wounded. No compromise on the right of detainees to liberty, or the right of the people to a dignified life. No reconciliation with the traitorous murderer, who ruthlessly spilled the blood of innocent Egyptians, sold off the homeland’s territories, wasted the country’s wealth and natural resources, and impoverished and starved the people.
Ibrahim Munir, Muslim Brotherhood Vice-Chairman, underlined the group’s stances and constants in an interview with the satellite TV channels “Watan”, “Sharq” and “Mekammileen” on Saturday evening (November 19, 2016).
We urge the media to commit to accuracy, honesty and professional practices in the news and statements they report,.
We also urge all revolutionary groups and symbols of the Revolution to close ranks, unite, and complete the January 25, 2011 Revolution – in order to achieve all its democratic goals, building a bright future for a free homeland.
