Bangladesh is an Islamic country but banned Jamaat-e-Islami, the Islamic political party. Egypt should learn from Bangladesh and ban Muslim Brotherhood. There is almost no difference between the ideologies of Maulana Maududi’s Jamaat-e-Islami and Hasan al Banna’s Muslim Brotherhood.
The Muslim Brotherhood and Jama’at-i Islami are separate movements that tend to draw the bulk of their members from different ethnic groups (Arabs and South Asians, respectively). Nevertheless, both groups are rooted in a political ideology, frequently described as “Islamist,” that calls for the establishment of a distinctly Islamic system of government.
The Muslim Brotherhood is without question the world’s most influential modern Islamist organization. Founded in Egypt in 1928 by schoolteacher Hassan al-Banna, the group advocates the embrace of Islam as a way to promote both personal development and broader social reform. Initially a religious and social organization, the Muslim Brotherhood quickly became politicized. Its ideology, which calls for establishing Islamic states based on shari’a (or Islamic) law, became the basis for virtually all Islamist movements. The group’s standard slogan, “Islam is the solution,” expresses the movement’s emphasis on the systematic application of Islam to all facets of life.
Soon after it was founded, the Muslim Brotherhood spread beyond the confines of Egypt, eventually establishing branches in nearly every country in the Arab world. In addition, it also provided the ideological basis for a number of other prominent Islamist movements outside the Arab world, including the Pakistan-based group Jama’at-i Islami, broadly translated as “Islamic society.”
If you want true democracy, you have to have secularism. And if you have secularism, it means you have strictly separated state from religion. And if you do that, you can not have politics based on religion, because almost all religions are basically anti-women, anti-science,anti-democracy, anti-rationality, anti-equality, anti-humanity. You can not allow it to rule the world and destroy every good thing that we have built so far. Muslim Brotherhood and Jamaat-e-Islami want theocracy, not democracy. They do not believe in women’s equal rights and people’s right to criticize Islam, they want sharia laws or Islamic laws or 7th century’s barbaric laws that are against women’s rights and human rights. Their agenda is to convert the whole world to darul Islam, the land of Islam. They want democracy just long enough to replace it with theocracy.
Come on! Who doesn’t know democracy is the solution! But not in those lands where you have brainwashed people with anti democratic religion for centuries! First you ban the political parties that are based on religion then you welcome democracy. Fascist Nazi party is banned in Europe. Muslim Brotherhood and Jamaat-e-Islami are not better than Nazi. You should know that religion and fascism work hand in hand.
