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.

Douglas May of AWR commends the New York Times article cited below, calls on the U.S. to receive the Egyptian president respectfully and listen to him with an open mind. While President Muhammad Mursī makes no apologies for his Muslim Brotherhood background, May is hopeful that his determination to guarantee equal rights for all its citizens filters down to all Egypt’s citizens, its government and its judiciary.
Deputy leader of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) Dr. Rafīq Habīb said the groups that hail the dissolution of the parliament only aim to block any success by Islamists and then corner the president to call for repeating the presidential elections.

The Public Prosecutor 'Abd al-Mijīd Mahmūd ordered to capture seven expatriate Copts and remand them under custody pending investigation. He sent an official request to the American authority to hand the suspects to Egypt. From the seven Copts are Maurice Sādiq and Father Terry Jones who were referred to Criminal Court with charges of offending Prophet Muhammad.
Dr. Ahmad al-Tayīb, Azhar's Grand Shaykh, said that offending the Prophet Muhammad is something repetitive and will happen again.
The Muslim Brotherhood reaction toward both situations varied. First when a Danish newspaper published cartoons denigrating the Prophet Muhammad, the second was the recent film offending the Prophet Muhammad that was published in the United States.
Washington Post published an article by the Muftī of the Republic Dr. 'Alī Jum'ah with the title "Prophet Muhammad is ‘the mercy to all worlds’ to Muslims: Egypt’s mufti" on September 18, 2012.
Strong demonstrations erupted in 20 Islamic countries and western embassies over the film offending the Prophet Muhammad. This did not prevent the French newspaper Charlie Hebdo from publishing cartoons dishonoring the Prophet Muhammad.
The Holy Azhar denounced republishing the cartoons dishonoring Prophet Muhammad by the French newspaper Charlie Hebdo.
On March 2011, Maurice Sādiq, a lawyer and one of the expatriate Copts, announced a Coptic State and opening the first Coptic State Embassy in Juba.
Although Juba did not officially declared these information, Maurice states that a number of secretary-generals opened several consulate offices in worldly capitals and cities like Jerusalem, Washington, Paris, Montreal, Sidney, Seoul, Bonn, London and Johannesburg. Maurice added that these capitals were informed officially that Dr. 'Ismat Zaqalamah will be the president of the Coptic State.
