Egyptian Government Strips Muslim Brotherhood of NGO Status

Cairo, October 9 (RHC)--Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood is now on the country’s blacklist as the government has ordered the group’s removal from the list of approved non-governmental organizations. Egypt’s media reports the government’s decision to strip the Muslim Brotherhood of NGO status comes after a judicial order to ban the group.

An Egyptian court ordered the Brotherhood to stop operating and confiscated its assets last month. The court also banned any institution branching out from or belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Muslim Brotherhood Society was founded earlier this year as an NGO with former Brotherhood leader, Mohammed Mahdi Akef, as its chairman.

The Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party won parliamentary and presidential elections after the country's dictator, Hosni Mubarak, was overthrown in 2011 revolution. Egypt has witnessed soaring violence since July 3, when General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the head of the Egyptian army, pushed aside Morsi and declared Chief Justice of Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court Adly Mansour as the interim president.
