Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya stressed that it will take no part in this Friday’s million-man march ‎called for by Egypt's Sufis, as well as pro-democracy political parties and movements, ‎saying the organisers of the march are seeking to “spread sharia's Islamic principles in ‎Egypt.”‎

‎"The Complex of ‎Islamic Studies has warned about the majority of the organisers of this day, saying that they are being funded by Iran to spread sharia's Islamic principles ‎in Egypt,” a statement made by the Islamist group reads. ‎

Al-Jamaa, in the same statement, said the participation in Friday’s march would cause ‎more chaos on the political landscape and further weaken security as well. ‎

The march will be staged to emphasise a civil, modern state in response to last Friday's ‎overtaking of Tahrir Square by Islamists, especially Salafists, who raised hardline Islamic slogans.
