New Delhi, July 4: Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari, Ameer (National President) of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, has termed the sacking of elected democratic government of President Dr. Mohammad Morsi by the Egyptian military as utterly wrong, illegal, un-Islamic, murder of democracy and conspiracy of anti-Islam internal and external forces. Ameer-e Jamaat has appealed to the people of Egypt not to let the historic connection of Egypt with Islam be affected and try to make it stronger.
In a media statement today, Ameer-e Jamaat Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari said that in one year rule, President Dr. Mohammad Morsi has made laudable efforts to improve the internal and external affairs of Egypt with extraordinary wisdom, patience and determination. Maulana further said that sacking of an Islamist government in Egypt is indeed pitiable but not surprising because from the day one, attempts had been made to build up internal atmosphere against it. Ameer-e Jamaat has appealed to the people of Egypt to think if an elected democratic and constitutional government is better or military regime which is utterly against the requirements of democracy. The people of Egypt should also think if Army should be given right to rule the country instead of protecting the borders of the country.
Jamaat leader expressed hope that military leaders would maintain a behavior of respect and justice with leaders of Ikhwanul Muslimoon (Muslim Brotherhood) and would keep from the actions that brought disgrace to military rulers in the past.
