FJP Condemns Attacks on Copts; Reaffirms Revolution Non-Violence
In a press release Thursday, Murad Ali, Media Spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Freedom and Justice Party, condemns attacks against Copts, churches and property, and stresses the peacefulness of the Revolution.
Thursday, August 15,2013
Based on the true nature of our religion, and pursuant to our party’s indivisible principles, we strongly condemn any attack, even verbal, against Copts, their churches or their property.
Although some Coptic leaders may have supported (or even participated) in the July 3 coup, for one reason or another, no such attacks can be justifiable.
Our Revolution is non-violent. We will continue to mobilize and mass in the streets without violence and without destruction or sabotage.
Violence is not our policy. Ongoing acts of vandalism are aimed to damage our reputation, demonize our peaceful Revolution and find justification for the July 3 coup commanders and collaborators to continue their acts of repression and violence.
ENDS
