The Salafist Nour Party has condemned protests planned by the Muslim Brotherhood for 3 July, the one year anniversary of the ouster of president Mohamed Morsi, state news agency MENA reported.

In a statement released on Monday, the National Alliance to Support Legitimacy (NASL), a pro-Morsi coalition that includes the Brotherhood, called for nationwide protests to break what they described as a military coup that removed Morsi – who hailed from the group – from power.

Nour Party head Younis Makhioun said the protests would only bring more losses, violence and killing.

Makhioun asked the Brotherhood to stop being detached from reality and to face the reality, that there is popular acceptance of the status quo and also recognition from the international community.

The head of the Nour Party, which used to be one of the Brotherhood's strongest allies, asked the group to cease pushing the youth into more losses and putting the country into a state of tension.

Following Morsi's ouster, a political roadmap was announced by then-army chief Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi which consisted of three elections – a constitutional referendum in January, followed by the presidential vote in May and then a parliamentary election, slated to begin in mid-July.

They don't get it
They have lost the Egyptian people. All these protests do is make the population hate them even more. The Egyptian people don't want you. They kicked you out. Your campaign has failed . The international community has recognized what the Egyptian people want and has embraced it. You can call it a coup you can call it whatever you want. The people have spoken. President Elsisi has listened and the international community has approved its over. Spend your time educating yourselves try and wash the blood off your hands repent and you will be accepted in the new Egypt . Insist on your retarded ideology of murder and terror and the Egyptian people will wipe you out
