Egypt Shuts Down 50 NGOs for Muslim Brotherhood Connections

rabia

Egypt’s social solidarity minister ordered the dissolution of 50 NGOs in five Egyptian cities for being affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, on Tuesday, bringing the total number of NGOs shut down in similar decisions this year to 430.

An urgent matters court banned the Brotherhood in September 2013 and established a committee to manage its funds.

The decision to shut down the NGOs today comes in implementation of this court decision, Minister Ghada Wali told state news agency MENA.

Wali previously dissolved 169 NGOs on February 23 and 112 more on March 1 and 99 on March 18 in implementation of the court ruling.

The court ruling stipulates the banning of the activities of any association that is branched from the Brotherhood, that was founded by Brotherhood funds or that receives any form of support from the Brotherhood.

Egypt listed the Brotherhood as a terrorist organisation in December 2013 and insists it is behind the wave of militancy which has targeted security personnel since July 2013. The Brotherhood continuously denies the accusations.

    The general behavior of the MB reminds me of stuck pigs, squealing, while under cover of darkness and the echoes of the pigs screaming, large arms shipments are taking place, to destroy Egypt, BECAUSE the country wants peace and is finally on the right track. Morsi saw a way to defraud the people of Egypt and fool them that he was actually voted democratically all the while that fascist criminal Morsi and his western backed MB terrorist cronies were preparing for more chaos. His lies stripped him and the MB of any legal standing, while western medias tried concealing what is actually happening on the grounds in Egypt leaves the basic western individual constrained by their own lack of knowledge in Egyptian law. Egyptians have long been known for civilization and order hence this cleansing of terrorism in Egypt that began in Jan 2011 till this present day.

      egyptian generals are the biggest producer of terrorism and terrorist ,60 years of military rule have turned egypt into a failed state

      you can scream and shout anything you want about MB but history will not hide the truth

      60 years of authoritarian military rule which they enforced by creating the largest army and security forces in the regions that oppressed any form of opposition by killing jailing and torturing civilians

      as long the generals are present egypt will never know peace and stability , civilian rule that enforces participation and representation of every part of society is which will bring peace and prosperity

      you can keep fixating on MB all you want but the real matter is the continuation of military rule which will keep generals corrupting egypt and its people !

      the generals are already starting to fight between each other so its only matter of time before they get consumed by their own greed and ego !

    Why do you say “Egypt listed the Brotherhood as a terrorist organisation” as if the country was unified behind that decision. It was Sisi’s, as a representative of the military’s neo-liberal interests who made the decision for everyone else. I pray for the day Egypt actually comes together to make communal decisions about its future. Together.

    • Wael Gohar

      Neo-liberal interests? Sisi is a neo-liberal? Seriously? He’s a fascist clear and open.

      • Jonah Gold

        Neo-liberal refers to the Western led capitalist imperialist system which utilizes the guise of “democracy” and “stability” to support authoritarian regimes that work within the greater international financial and security framework. We all know Sisi is a ruthless dictator, who in the end is going to make Mubarak look nice in comparison.
