Egyptian authorities have arrested the daughter and son-in-law of the prominent Muslim Brotherhood scholar Shaykh Yusuf al-Qardawi.
Ula al-Qaradawi and her husband, Hussam Khalad, a leader of the al-Wasat Party were arrested during their stay at an Egyptian resort in the North Coast.
The arrests are believed to be a part of the recent diplomatic and trade boycott of Qatar by Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and other Arab countries for allegedly supporting Iran, funding terrorism and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.
Whilst Qatar has strongly rejected the accusations of colluding with Iran and funding terrorism, the boycott of the small Gulf country and the witch-hunt of the Muslim Brotherhood is understood to be the beginning of normalising political and economic relations with Israel – an initiative spearheaded by Saudi’s new Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman and supported by the Donald Trump administration.
