Hundreds of Afghans rally in Kabul for Mursi
The ouster of Mursi’s government on July 03, 2013 sparked angry and violent protests in Egypt, involving hundreds of thousands of people. Subsequently, Mursi and some of his supporters were imprisoned.
In Kabul, the rally began on Friday afternoon from Pul-i-Khishti to the Eidgah Mosque. Hundreds of demonstrators, carrying a 10-metre Egyptian flag and the deposed president’s posters, raised slogans in support of the Muslim community.
They had gathered to demonstrate solidarity with the Egyptian Muslim brethren and to condemn the coup there, a member of the Jamiat-i-Islah party, Fazal Hadi Wazin, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
Since secular systems always created misfortunes, those who wanted to eradicate corruption should join hands with Islamist groups, suggested another member the party, Dr. Rahmatullah Zahid.
At the ending of the protest, protesters issued a resolution, condemning the coup and asking freedom-loving nations, the UN, OIC and other communities to denounce the military intervention.
The letter also asked for the reinstatement of the Mursi government. It also urged the Karzai administration not to recognise the new Egyptian set-up.
