Student Islamic organisation of India today held a protest rally condemning the “killing of president Morsi by an illegitimate regime.”

He added that “President Morsi was a true leader, he represented hopes for a free, strong and representative leadership of the Islamic world. The innumerable funeral prayers held for him all across Egypt and the world, is testament to the popularity and moral standing of President Morsi.

Egypt’s first and only democratically elected president, Mohammad Morsi, collapsed and died during a court appearance in Cairo on 17th June 2019. Ever since his death, human rights groups have raised questions regarding the manner of his death. Citing evidence of the appalling conditions under which he was imprisoned for the last six years – including almost continuous solitary confinement, systematic medical negligence and torture – rights groups and international bodies have refused to accept that President Morsi died of natural causes. The United Nations has called for a “thorough and transparent” investigation into his death, encompassing not only the death itself but encompassing all aspects of his six year long incarceration.
