EGYPTIAN PROTESTERS DEMAND MORSI'S RETURN

Muslim World

Thousands of supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi have taken to the streets to demand his return. Protesters gathered at Rabaa Al Adawia square in Cairo on 5 July to call for Morsi to be reinstalled as Egypt’s president. The protesters called for activating the constitution, naming a new prosecutor general and holding parliamentary election within two months. Patriotic songs were booming from loudspeakers amid chants against defence minister Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and leading opposition figures Mohamed el-Baradei and Hamdeen Sabahi.

Organizers said protesters would march from the square to the Republican Guards headquarters in eastern Cairo, where Morsi is being held. Pro-Morsi protesters also marched from several mosques in Giza and southern Cairo toward the Rabaa Al Adawia square. The Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan), of which Morsi is a member, has vowed peaceful protests against the army’s removal of the Islamist president.
