Egyptian sociologist calls on authorities to turn mosques into prisons

World Bulletin / News Desk

Egyptian sociologist and chairman of the Ibn Khaldoun Center for Human Rights, Saad Eddin Ibrahim, called on the Egyptian interim government to turn mosques and schools into temporary prisons to deal with the influx of Muslim Brotherhood members who have been detained since the elected president Mohamed Morsi was ousted in a military coup on July 3.

Known for his pro-military views, Saad Eddin Ibrahim accused the Muslim Brotherhood of carrying out bombings in Egypt’s Watan newspaper.

The Muslim Brotherhood was designated as a terrorist organization after the government blamed them for bombing the Nile Delta city of Mansoura, a charge they have denied.

Salafi Front spokeman Khaled Said responded to the request saying "the so-called Egyptian liberal elite is passing through its worst phases. They are aspiring to emulate the Nazi camps in Germany and Italian detention centers in Libya, confronting their fellow countrymen simply because of political differences."
