Egypt's ruling Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) sharply criticised the April 6 Youth Movement Saturday after the movement’s members held up women's underwear during a protest in front of the minister of interior’s home Friday.

The statement published on the Muslim Brotherhood English-language website, Ikhwan web, quoting the FJP’s media advisor Ahmed Murad, described the movement's behaviour as a "symptom of moral collapse worse than last week’s insult to the president when they spread animal feed in front of his house."

"The sanctity of the home must never be violated in the name of political disputes or opposition activity. We must never forget our basic morality, the code of ethics by which the great people of Egypt have been raised," said Murad.

Around 400 members of the April 6 Youth Movement staged a protest at dawn Friday to demand the release of 53 activists who were arrested during Wednesday’s crackdown by security forces on Tahrir Square, denouncing what what they describe as "heavy-handed" tactics employed by Egypt's interior ministry.

At least four members of April 6 Movement were arrested during the anti-minister of interior protest in Cairo's Nasr City district.

On 22 March, members of the youth movement gathered in front of President Mohamed Morsi’s house in new Cairo in a protest that coincided with nationwide rallies against both the president and the Muslim Brotherhood. They spread animal feed in front of his house.

It is a symptom of despair from the revolutionist on how the president and MB did not fulfill their promises to them and now attacking them and having heavy hands on them just for having different opinion .
