Egyptian Man Reports Wife To Police For Belonging To Outlawed Muslim Brotherhood

In his report, al Gharabawi wrote that his relationship with his wife had soured after she asked him to join the group, which was designated a "terrorist" organization by the government last December.

In a sign of mounting polarization in Egypt, a man reported his wife to State Security prosecutors on Wednesday for belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood, the group – now outlawed – from which ousted president Mohamed Morsi hails.

In a report filed with Egypt's State Security Prosecution, which deals with high-profile criminal and terrorist cases, Ahmed Fathi al-Gharabawi claimed to have discovered his wife's links with the Brotherhood immediately after Morsi assumed the presidency in June 2012.

Al-Gharabawi claimed that, when Morsi was ousted by the military one year later, his wife – who works as an assistant professor of medicine – began inciting her students to hold demonstrations in support of the ousted president.

In his report, al-Gharabawi wrote that his relationship with his wife had soured after she asked him to join the group, which was designated a "terrorist" organization by the government last December.

The "terrorist" designation immediately followed the bombing of a police headquarters in Egypt's Nile Delta – an attack that the Brotherhood condemned and denied any involvement in.

Following Morsi's ouster last July, al-Gharabawi says his wife had made two trips to London.

In his report, he enclosed a photo of his wife in London flashing the four-fingered Rabaa salute, which commemorates hundreds of pro-Morsi demonstrators killed during the violent dispersal of two sit-ins last August.

According to Samir Sabri, al-Gharabawi's lawyer, State Security prosecutors planned to open an investigation into his client's allegations against his wife, who, he added, would soon be summoned for questioning.

In his report, al-Gharabawi called for a harsh punishment for his wife, who, he alleged, belonged to a "terrorist" group and had incited students to stage protests.

Since the start of the new school year last October, Egyptian universities – especially Cairo's Al-Azhar University – have become hotbeds of protest against Morsi's ouster.
