The Muslim Brotherhood rejects fatwas that call for killing demonstrators participating in the planned 24 August protests, said MB lawyer Abdel Moneim Abdel Maqsoud on Wednesday.
“Peaceful demonstration is a guaranteed right to all,” he said, “and vandalism will be dealt with by the authorities.”
Abdel Maqsoud also denied media reports alleging that the Brotherhood is developing a plan to face the protests. “The group is prepared to defend its offices in legal ways,” he said.
