Egypt court asks Mufti to weigh in on death sentences for 10

Source: Associated Press

CAIRO (AP) — An Egyptian court has referred the case of 10 alleged Muslim Brotherhood members held on terrorism charges to the country’s top religious authority, the Grand Mufti, for a non-binding opinion on whether they can be executed.

The Giza Criminal Court said Wednesday the 10 were charged with belonging to a terrorist group and planning attacks against the state.


The verdict, set for March 10, can be appealed. The judge could also rule independently of the Mufti.

The Brotherhood won a series of free elections after Egypt’s 2011 uprising, and a senior Brotherhood figure, Mohammed Morsi, was elected president in 2012.

    No surprise at all if Tariq Ramadan’s view of Islam is extremist ideology that hostile toward Jews, Christian and infidel etc. he cannot hide his ideology of Islam.
    He also dangerous for democratic secular, Human Right, ahmadiyyah etc

    Allah is wise and know every thing what people does.
