Cairo – A large number of the Muslim Brotherhood members, who are currently jailed in Egypt, have expressed their desire to embark on an ideological revisionism and disconnect from the MB group, renouncing all acts of violence and protests staged following the ouster of former Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013.

Sameh Eid, an expert in Islamist movements’ affairs, considered this move a political maneuver from the Brotherhood members to get released from Egypt’s prisons.

Speaking to Egypt's Al-Mesryoon newspaper, Eid said Brotherhood members are now aware that they were belonging to a secret organization that used violence against its opponents.

He also appealed to the Egyptian regime to show sympathy with the MB dissidents and release them from prisons as soon as possible.

Eid also called for forming a committee composed of civil society organizations, revolutionary figures and Al-Azhar scholars to hold consultative talks with the MB dissidents inside prisons to correct their religious beliefs.

For his part, Professor of Political Science Ahmed Darrag said MB members are now regretting getting into dispute with the Egyptian regime.

“The MB members have learned the lesson after spending four years behind bars,” Darrag said, adding that they are now sure that the current Egyptian regime cannot be easily toppled, so they seek to be pardoned by President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.
