Article summary: 

After shutting down satellite channels that used to act as official platforms for Salafī figures, Habīb says the regime made it clear that Salafīs are not allowed to participate in Egyptian politics. He says that the Egyptian regime is once again in confrontation with Salafīs, this time for spreading Islamic propaganda. He claims that the secular ruling class is afraid that the Egyptian people will grow so religious to the point of demanding a new government that represents them.

Key Words: Dr. Rafīq Habīb – Salafīs – Religious Extremism
