The cabinet under Hisham Qandeel said on Thursday it mulls taking legal action against those issuing fatwas (religious edicts) calling for killing opponents to the ruler.
Qandeel denounced such kind of extremist fatwas, saying they have nothing to do with the tolerant principles of Islam.
Such kind of fatwas instigate violence and stir up sedition and chaos, he added.
The Egyptians made the January Revolution to set up a democratic society where the language of dialogue, not killing, prevails, Qandil said.
"We make changes through free polls not through violence and killing in our new Egypt where the majority listens to requests of the minority and the minority respects the opinion of the majority."
"I am confident that the Egyptians are aware of the seriousness of such destructive fatwas," Qandil said, urging all political powers to encourage dialogue and discard violence for the sake of the country's interest.
