On Monday, an Egyptian court issued an injunction to dissolve the Muslim Brotherhood, and seize their assets. The ruling was made by the Cairo Court for Urgent Matters, but is a preliminary injunction on the Brotherhood until a higher court can make a more permanent action.
Since Mohamed Morsi’s ouster, Brotherhood members have participated in mass protests against the takeover. This ban would also impact the philanthropic role the Brotherhood has played in communities in Egypt.
What does this mean for the future of the Muslim Brotherhood? Is it a positive or negative for Egypt? What does it say about the military rule in Egypt?
