Muslim Brotherhood Deputy General Guide Khairat al-Shater said the group is preparing to establish an Islamic studies center that aims to help rebuild Egypt on the principles of Islamic Sharia.
“The brothers after the revolution want to play a strategic role after they have been marginalized for many years,” Shater said during a symposium Wednesday. “More than 30,000 of them were jailed since 1992 until Mubarak was ousted.
“We shall coordinate with all political forces, including the Shias and the Copts,” he said, adding that rebuilding the country on the principles of Sharia is a difficult task.
He said the nation needs new schools that teach humanities with an Islamic reference and that the absence of Islamic rule and jurisprudence has harmed the nation.
