After Mohammed Mursi was installed as president in June 2012 after a series of protests and the (illusion of a revolution) Arab uprising, his policies led the Egyptians to the conclusion that Mursi was just another dictator only with a stricter Islamic agenda.

The Egyptian president’s strong association with the notorious Islamist group Muslim Brotherhood has also created negative speculations regarding possible Islamist dictatorship in the country that sparked the ongoing Egypt protests and demonstrations against Mursi’s regime in Tahrir Square and many other parts of the country which have caused a lot of bloodshed and violence.

Supporters from Al-Gaama and Al-Islamiya will gather outside Cairo University while Muslim brotherhood will take only a ‘symbolic’ part in the rally.

The rally is basically a response to the anti-Mursi activists who have held several demonstrations and protests resulting in clashes between the Security Forces and the protestors. The Islamist groups tend to remind through their rally that opposition forces should respect the Egyptian public’s choice with which Mursi was elected and adopt peaceful methods to come to power through the ballot box.

The Mursi opposition protestors and demonstrators do not trust Mursi and pro-Mursi Islamist groups anymore. Chances are that proposed rally might just add more fuel to the ongoing violence in the country. Since the anti-Mursi activists want Mohammed Mursi to step down, it is highly unlikely that another protest or rally would resolve this sensitive issue. With more people on the opposite end, it might just end up in more hostility, given the present situation of the country.
