Name and Shame the Terrorists! Egypt court lists 164 Islamists as leading ‘terrorists’

Giving out a staunch proof to the entire world, here’s what the Egyptian Court has declared about Islamists and their reality. An Egyptian court listed 164 Islamists as leaders of terrorist entities, including leading members of Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya (Islamic Group) as well as loyalists of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group, official MENA news agency reported.

According to the reports by Xinhua news agency, the list includes Assem Abdel-Maged, Mohamed al-Islambouli and Tarek al-Zomor of al-Jamaa al-Islamiya, a self-proclaimed anti-government Islamic group that committed violent and terror activities in Egypt in the 1990’s.

Cairo Criminal Court also ordered to seize their funds to be supervised and run by special committees. “These are judicial precautionary measures that seek preservation and protection of the society,” said the court, noting that an individual is listed as a terrorist after proven guilty of crimes that ruin the principles and values of the society.

Taking a step forward to curb terrorism and thinking about the welfare of the society, Egypt Court says that Terrorism is a curse for the nation and its well being, thus needs to be finished. Pakistan is one country that needs to learn and inspire from these ideologies of Egypt that will better times in future.

Most Islamists and Brotherhood loyalists have either been jailed or fugitives since the popular-backed military ouster of former Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in early July 2013. Many of them have received appealable death sentences and life imprisonments over charges varying from inciting violence and murder to espionage and jailbreak.

Morsi himself is now serving a 20-year prison sentence over inciting deadly clashes between his supporters and opponents in late 2012 and a 25-year jail term over leaking classified documents to Qatar. Since Morsi’s ouster, Egypt has been facing a wave of terror attacks that killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers as well as civilians.
A Sinai-based militant group affiliated with the Islamic State regional terrorist group claimed responsibility for most of the attacks in Egypt over the past few years.

Compared to another nations, Egypt has shown strict actions against the culture of Terrorism in the world, making sure to end its roots by implementing strict laws. Setting an example to other nations, Egypt has carried on numerous encounters in an attempt to finish terrorism.

Yet again a fact to uplaud about the Egyptian Government is that the Egyptian forces have killed hundreds of terrorists and arrested thousands of suspects during the country’s anti-terror war declared by President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, the army chief then, following Morsi’s ouster.
