The Saudi Council of Senior Scholars (CSS) said that the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist group that does not represent the approach of Islam.
In a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) on Tuesday, the council added that "the group (blindly) follows its partisan objectives that are running contrary to the guidance of our graceful religion, while taking religion as a mask to disguise its purposes in order to practice the opposite such as sedition, wreaking havoc, committing violence and terrorism."
The statement added that anything that might affect the unity of citizens around their leaders through disseminating suspicion or founding groups pledging allegiance to outside parties or organizations is forbidden according to the Holy Quran and the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (Sunnah).
Since its founding, the Muslim Brotherhood has never shown any care of Islamic creed, or the domains of knowledge related to the Quran or Sunnah, for its sole goal is to grab the reins of power, the council said.
Finally, the statement shed light on part of the bloody history of the Muslim Brotherhood, adding that out of its womb, many extremist and terrorist groups have emerged, wreaking havoc on so many territories, which has been clearly demonstrated by their violence and crimes all over the world.
IN May 2020, Saudi Arabia blacklisted the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization officially.
Egypt has been designated the MB as a terrorist organization in December 2013.
