The Muslim Brotherhood said in a Wednesday statement that it shall remain peaceful, and its official position should not be judged or understood by statements by other individuals or groups.
The Brotherhood, which is now considered a terrorist group by the Egyptian state, reiterated that its positions and demands are expressed only in the group’s official statements.
The statement said the entire group’s publications, including placards, slogans and chants “are concerned with and only call for the overthrow of Egypt’s military junta”.
The group is also concerned with the “restoration of constitutional legitimacy, release of all political detainees, denouncing crimes against prisoners”.
The statement added that the group remains committed to the slogan of its jailed Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie: “Our peacefulness is stronger than their bullets”.
The Muslim Brotherhood was not available for comment until the time of publishing, to elaborate on the context of this statement.
