"When Not Against God's law" Addition to Constitution Opposed by Muslim Brotherhood

A Muslim Brotherhood leader said that the group is against adding the phrase “when not against God’s law” to the new constitution.

Abdel Khaleq al-Sherif, the Brotherhood’s publicity head, said that the phrase does not add any meaning.

Ezzedine Thabet, a member of the Executive Bureau of the Freedom and Justice Party in Assiut, said that he prefers that the second article, which states that “the principles of Islamic Sharia are the main source of legislation,” remain as it is without addition, explaining that it this article ensures that God’s law would not be violated.
