Muslim Brotherhood member Ahmad al-Mogheer
CAIRO – 20 August 2017: Muslim Brotherhood member Ahmed al-Mogheer sparked controversy on social networking websites after he expressed his regret for his inability to cause harm to late Egyptian politician Mohamed Refaat el-Saeed, former chairperson of the National Progressive Unionist Party (Tagammu).
On Thursday, the iconic politician passed away at age 84 at his home in Cairo, and the funeral will be held on Sunday.
Mogheer’s statement reflected the Brotherhood’s ideology characterized by deep hatred and violence against Egypt’s symbols and politicians.
The Brotherhood member has previously praised the attacks on army and police personnel in different areas in Egypt, inciting violence against the state authorities.
Egypt has declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group in 2013, criminalising all its activities, its financing and even membership to the group following the ouster of the country's former president Mohamed Morsi.
