(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) A former Muslim Brotherhood member has spoken out against the revolutionary tactics that have knocked out the leadership in other Arabic countries such as Egypt.
Dr Syed Abdul Sattar Al Melegy called up on people living in the UAE to support their nation and its leadership during a lecture series on regional politics hosted in Dubai on Monday.
"It is important for the people living in a country to support the development goals and refrain from working against the national interest (of that country). There is no need to create religion-centric issues in countries which are on the path of progress and growth," said Dr Syed Abdul Sattar.
In a lecture hosted by the Al Mesbar Studies & Research Centre, Dr Abdul Sattar emphasised the need to improve regional stability.
"For a developing nation, it is important to provide avenues of work while empowering people with jobs which utilise their knowledge. Egypt has not stabilised after the revolution even after the new leadership came to power. The economy is still coming to terms with the instability," said Dr Abdul Sattar.
"Propagating a revolution and taking over the leadership of a country is not the right approach."
The youth "should particularly keep away from such means as a few Muslim groups in the region are using this approach to their advantage."
The lecture series that opened in Dubai on Monday was hosted by Turki Al Dakhil, Chairman of Al Mesbar Studies & Research Centre.
"Politics is a hot topic among people whenever there is a discussion. We want people to have a better idea about people who have been active in the political sphere. We focus our work on research about Islamic groups and we even have a journal dedicated to it," said Turki, who is a popular television personality.
