    Omair Anas of JNU speaking during the protest.

    He condemned the declaration of suspending President, Parliament and the Constitution and efforts to “restore Mubarak era.”
    He said that the settlement of the crisis was possible within legitimate political process and it is very clear that the coup is aimed to restoring the ‘deep state’ and remnant of deposed dictator Hosni Mubarak who have been generously called to join home ministry and security forces to deal with anti-coup protest.

    Anisuzzaman of the Campus Front of India also condemned the “meddling” of the outside forces and their failure to condemn the military coup, adding that the role of the Arab League and its member states was equally disappointing particularly Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates which have gone to the extent of supporting the coup and funding the coup according to media reports.

    He called upon the international rights based organizations to intervene to prevent future massacre and to conduct independent inquiry of this massacres. He also questioned the Indian government’s silence over unfolding events in the region with grave concern which is also against India’s long term interest because India’s relation with the region is not only between the regimes but also between the two people. It is important for India to support peoples demand for justice, democratic rights and peace in the region.

    Sharique Ansar from SIO said that this is murder of humanity; and appealed to all Egyptians, liberals, Islamists and others to refrain from violence against each other and to protect Egypt from military dictatorship. & International community, including the Arab League, the United Nations and other countries to support civilian government elected by the people of Egypt and not to deal secretly with the military as they have done in the past.
