In the message of condolence, Jamaat Ameer stated that the Muslim Ummah has lost a veteran Islamic scholar and a great leader of the world Islamic movement at the demise of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood’s former Chairman Mohamed Mahdi Akef. Like the Egyptians, we are also deeply shocked at the death of this great leader. He has struggled throughout his life for establishing Islamic state and Islamic society in Egypt. His sacrifice will remain as a source of inspiration for not only for the Egyptians, but also for the leaders, members and activists of the Islamic movement around the world.
