'Brotherhood Without Violence" Challenges Older Leadership

Tuesday, 13 August 2013 03:42 AM

Since Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi's ouster July 3, hundreds of Muslim Brotherhood activists, primarily from the group’s younger generation, have been calling for a peaceful revolt against its current leadership.
 
They oppose the protests and sit-down strikes that movement leaders have been backing in an attempt to restore Morsi to the presidency — events that have frequently resulted in violence.
 
The splinter groups are calling for the ouster of Brotherhood General Guide Dr. Muhammad Badi, and demanding early elections to choose a more "enlightened" leadership for the organization, according to a new analysis published by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
 
The most prominent of these groups is called the "Brotherhood Without Violence." The group, which has more than 500 members, is petitioning the Muslim Brotherhood to remove Badi and members of his office and to hold early elections to choose new leaders.
 
In early August 2013, the Egyptian media reported that Muhammad Heidi, the son-in-law of Brotherhood Deputy General Guide Khairat Al-Shater, had joined the Brotherhood Without Violence movement.
 
One member of the group said many young people have realized that the Muslim Brotherhood leadership had no vision for a solution to the current crisis in Egypt, that the demonstrations were futile, and that it was best to go home and accept reality  namely the fall of the Morsi government.[
 
Ahmad Yahya, coordinator for the Brotherhood Without Violence, says some of its 500 members have remained inside the Muslim Brotherhood and some have left the organization.
