Egypt to confiscate and remove Muslim Brotherhood books from libraries

Egypt continues to increase pressure on the Muslim Brotherhood, which was labeled a terrorist organization after the bloody military coup in 2013, headed by the incumbent president, Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi. The Ministry of Religious Endowments announced Tuesday it will “purge and confiscate” the libraries of Egyptian mosques of any books or digital material that contradict “the leniency of Islam.” Ashraf Fahmy, a preaching official in the ministry, was quoted by Daily News Egypt as saying that the decision will include investigating small libraries in mosques “in order to purge them of books that call for fundamentalism and extremism and call for the opposite of moderate Islam.”

  • Another good and necessary move by Sisi. Every country in the West should do the same with all Islamic literature. Islamic literature is equivalent to hate speech at its very worst – it is a call to murder, rob and rape. Certainly not reasonable.
