Egypt is one of the five great civilizations of the world. The great pyramids, the light house of Alexandria are among the Seven Wonders of the World.
Egypt became independent after the withdrawal of British forces in the year 1953.Since its independence, till the year 2011, the State was ruled by dictators and had become the land of conflicts and wars.
The dictators bred corruption and poverty, abused power in their tenure. Therefore the unrest and uprising started in the year 2010, which ultimately threw out the tyrant Hosni Mubarak on 11th Feb, 2011.
Dr. Mohammed Morsi was the first civilian president, democratically elected on June 2012 with share of 51.7% of casted votes and winning with a margin of over 10 lakhs Votes.
Dr. Mohammed Morsi has done his Doctorate in material science and was professor in university of California. He was elected as the Member of Parliament for the year 2000-2005 and become the chairperson of freedom and justice party of Egypt. President Mohammed Morsi visited India from18th to 21st March, 2013 and signed many trade agreements. Trade between India & Egypt increased by 30% because of these agreements.
The Military dictators never tolerated the rise of civilian power and therefore a military coup was done on 3rd July, 2013 unseating the first democratically elected civilian president.
The Conflict between dictatorship and democracy did not end even after the military coup. On 21 April, 2015 the dictator's court sentenced Morsi to 20 years in prison on certain baseless allegations and again the same court sentenced Dr. Mohammed Morsi to Death.
The death sentence to Mr. Mohammed Morsi is not just a penalty to an individual but the verdict of the court can be considered as the death of the democracy. We cannot allow the dictators to overpower the democratic forces. We cannot allow the puppets of imperialist and capitalist forces to crush the people's movement in any part of the world therefore it is the time to unite the democratic forces and the people's movement of the world, to come together against the imperialist, capitalist and anti-people forces and their puppets.
A protest and Dharna in Hyderabad is being organized on 28th May 2015 at Indra Park between4pm to 6pm by all civil society organizations, political organizations and rights activists to show solidarity with Dr. Mohammed Morsi and protest against the death sentence given
