El Ekhteyar ( The Choice) part 3 revealed the personal side of Former Minister of Defense-current President of Egypt- Abdel Fattah El Sisi as a caring husband who helps his wife with the housework and a lovely father who listens to his daughter and gently advices her.
Aya El Sisi ( Mayan el Sayed) said to her father that her university colleagues say he is a member of Muslim Brotherhood.
So he said to her “ Islam is not confined to Muslim Brotherhood so being a devout Muslim doesn’t mean I am a member of MB.”
On the other hand we see how ousted President Mohamed Morsi invited El Sisi to join Muslim Brotherhood but he replied saying “I am not a member of Muslim Brotherhood and will not be, I am not a Salafi as well, I am just a Muslim.”
Sisi added that any President or political leader shouldn’t have specific political orientation nor be a member of a certain political faction, he has to be only Egyptian person who is loyal to his country.
“El Ekhteyar” series revealed for the first time the involvement of MB leader Safwat Hegazy in an illegal operation to smuggle large collection of weapons.
