Summary
Article summary: 

The Revolution Party of Tomorrow (Hizb Ghad al-Thawrah) accused preacher Khālid 'Abdullah, owner of al-Nās (People) Channel, of sedition-mongering in Egypt, disturbing national security and insulting heavenly religions. The Party filed a report with the Public Prosecutor.

The report continues that 'Abdullah hosted a guest on his show that related the story of the film "Innocence of Muslims," discrediting the Prophet Muhammad, which in return ignited the feeling of revenge and insulted the Islamic religion. What 'Abdullah did does not differ from what Albayr 'Imād did (reposting the link of the film and posting comments insulting Islam on his Facebook account). Albayr was arrested but 'Abdullah was not regardless that their crimes are similar.
