No to religious faschism

He also said that historians and researchers will study and analyze 3 directions of the revolution of the 30th of June.

The three directions are: fighting terrorism and extremism and whoever backs it up near and far, executing a political road map to the full, and finally implementing the plan to reform and advance Egypt and its economy.

Sisi stressed that the revolution of June 30th proved that the people of Egypt do not accept and will not accept the dominance of any group even if it uses religion as a cover.

At the end, Sisi renewed his vows to the Egyptian people promising that he would continue working day and night to complete these three tracks that resulted from the June 30th revolution.
