The demands and challenges of governance prompted the party to abandon this kind of discourse and adopt a civil political discourse instead that does not include declarations of disbelief against others and does not call for a religious state or for implementing Islamic law. In other words, it completely parted ways with the Islamist and Muslim Brotherhood movements which adopt the Sayyid Qutb and Abul Ala Maududi school where implementing Islamic law represents the backbone of its discourse.
