First democratic elected President of Egypt, Dr.Mohamed MorsiCaravan News

NEW DELHI – Holding the present Egyptian president Abdul Fattah Al-Sisi responsible for the death of his predecessor Dr Mohammed Morsi, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) has said that the death of the first democratic elected President of Egypt cannot be considered natural; rather it was a custodial murder and his martyrdom will strengthen the ‘Islamic Cause’ all over the world.

Reacting to the sudden demise of Morsi, JIH President Syed Sadatullah Hussaini said, “the first democratically and legally elected President of the Egypt Dr Morsi was forcibly ousted from power. His death cannot be considered natural, rather it was a custodial murder, the sole responsibility of which lies on the illegitimate Egyptian government and its self-proclaimed President and dictator Abdul Fattah Sisi. The martyrdom of Dr Morsi will strengthen the Islamic cause all over the world, Insha Allah. May Allah accept his martyrdom, grant him the highest Paradise and give patience to his bereaved family members’’.

The Jamaat also called for funeral prayers (Gaibana namaz-e-janaza) for Morsi which will be offered at its headquarters on Tuesday evening.

Expressing sorrow over  Dr Morsi’s death, Husaini said: “The Islamic world has lost a good leader in the death of Dr Morsi. It was a blatant murder of democracy when the legitimate government of Dr. Morsi that came to power through transparent and clean elections, was overthrown using violence and military power. The Sisi regime carried out fake trials by framing fabricated charges against Dr Morsi and by harassing and incarcerating the legitimate President of Egypt, committed a gross violation of human rights. We demand that an enquiry be conducted at the international level on the custodial murder of Dr Morsi and award exemplary punishment to the guilty after bringing them under the purview of the law’’.

The JIH President offered his condolences to all those who are associated with the Islamic movements, urging them to persevere on the path of the truth and not feel dejected. Insha’Allah, very soon they shall achieve success.
