They refuse to accept the dismissal of Mohamed Morsy and declare him as a legitimate President, elected by people during the democratic elections. They also strongly criticized the recent closing of several Islamist owned TV channels and arresting of its crew and also the detention of several Muslim Brotherhood leaders as well.
