Another clash between pro and anti-Mursi group expected in Egypt
Cairo: After Egypt’s opposition rejected an offer of compromise by President Mohammed and called for mass protests, now the Muslim Brotherhood had again urged Islamists to come out in support of Mursi.
Both the pro Mursi rally and the opposition rally by National Salvation Front (NSF) is scheduled on Tuesday and a three way clash is expected as the army will also play its part pacifying both the groups.
The opposition is directly demanding the cancellation of referendum scheduled on December 15, but Mursi has adamantly stood by it. According to the protestors the new constitution deprives citizens of basic rights as it is framed by Islamists allies.
The Islamists on the other hand have maintained that argument that the NSF is forcing their opinions by blackmailing the President.
Mursi had agreed on Saturday to drop a constitutional decree giving himself powers beyond judicial scrutiny.
But he replaced it with a new one that insisted the referendum would go ahead, despite calls for a delay.
So drama and chaos is likely to continue in Tahrir Square where the protests are already underway.
