Muslim Brotherhood calls for protests are betrayal to country, religion: Endowments Minister
Friday marks second anniversary of Rabaa Al-Adaweya and Al-Nahda Square sit-ins dispersal
Daily News Egypt August 14, 2015 1 Comment

Muslim Brotherhood calls for protests and chaos “are a betrayal of religion and the country”, said Minister Of Religious Endowments Mohamed Mokhtar Gomaa on Friday.
Gomaa’s comments come in light of the second anniversary of the Rabaa Al-Adeweya sit-in dispersal which falls on 14 August. The dispersal came following the ouster of former president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.
Human Rights Watch (HRW) reported that over 1,000 people were killed during the dispersal, while the 30 June Fact Finding Committee reported that only 607 were killed.
The dispersal of the Rabaa Al-Adaweya and Al-Nahda Square sit-ins was followed by a crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood leaders and preachers in mosques.
In his statement, Gomaa added that the installations of cameras in mosques “is to maintain the security, integrity and sanctity’’. He added that the ministry aims to avoid the “employment of mosques to serve any personal, private or electoral purposes”.
