Rapists ousted Morsi? You are calling those 33 million rapist? You are unbelievable.

Matter in fact, Egyptian women started being harassed & molested since the rise of Islamists. That's what all Islamists do, they don't have place for woman as working class in their agenda. They create fear in woman and put them into their house saying they can't wear this, they can't do this and all.

And by the way, People from India calling someone a rape regime? It's like pot calling kettle black.
Instead of calling other rapist, try changing the people of your country.

There is ample evidence for rape (explicitly) and gang-rape in the Koran. Further, Mohammad justifies this rape as being acceptable to Islamic allah.

Chapter 33 verse 50 of the Qu'ran:
"O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war, and the daughters of thine uncle on the father's side and the daughters of thine aunts on the father's side, and the daughters of thine uncles on the mother's side and the daughters of thine aunts on the mother's side who emigrated with thee, and a believing woman if she give herself unto the Prophet and the Prophet desire to ask her in marriage a privilege for thee only, not for the [rest of] believers. We are aware of that which We enjoined upon them concerning their wives and those whom their right hand possess that thou mayst be free from blame, for Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."

Thus, the Prophet is given sexual access to first cousins, captives, and any believing woman whom he desires to wed. In fact, he is given certain liberties denied to all others. Allah is here not only forgiving but also quite liberal, at least on the behalf of his Prophet. The term "whom your right hand possesses" refers to women captured in battle. Captive women were considered legitimate trophies of war and in fact the Prophet marries a Jewess whose husband has been slain. Although we can construe this practice to be "pro-sexuality," it is hard to imagine how this paleolithic approach to romance serves the interests of feminism.

Qu'ran 4:24
"And all married women are forbidden unto you EXCEPT those captives whom your right hand possesses. It is a decree of Allah for you. Lawful unto you are all beyond those mentioned, so that you seek them with your wealth in honest wedlock, not debauchery..."

Yes, it may just be the beginning. Wait till the Islamists cleric issue fatwa to rape Egyptian women who revolted against Morsi & MB, like in Syria.
Islamists from all over the world will come running to Egypt to rape Egyptian woman.
Sad but true.

Egyptian Salafist preacher Ahmad Mahmoud Abdullah said that women protesting in Tahrir Square "have no shame and want to be raped."

99.3% of Egyptian women have been sexually harassed

A new report by the United Nations shows that sexual harassment against women in Egypt is not only on the increase, but that 83 percent of women do not feel safe in public.

well look how many acid attacks are taking place over there. How small minded and fearful does a man have to be to ask someone to marry them and if they refuse, throw acid in their face. This is hardly just an Indian occurence as you can see it across all muslim nations.

I must disagree EL I get more harrassed in Egypt than anywhere else it is most annoying, even sometimes if I`m walking down the road with my husband,they just don`t stop. Can`t say anything about America as I have not been, but I stayed 2 weeks in Italy and didn`t have any harrassment nor in Greece, maybe because they are more free socities, this is the only thing that puts me off going to Egypt.

Sexual harassment does exist in uk....go google bbc articles on rise of sexual harassment in london,even though your country is free you have the same problem

Japan is free and advanced country,the sexual harassment is very high on stats.

Thanks EL I was just pointing out my experiences, I was in Hurghada so it is bound to happen but there were some good people as well who defended me.
In your earlier post you made it sound like it happens in America more,but it is a worldwide problem as your statistics suggest,and I yes it`s good you concede it happens in Egypt, but to me in three weeks it was a problem than a lifetime in England and other European countries.
I hope you get better leadership soon, good luck to you and Egypt.

it was bad experience for you,these guys are animals

the problem here, police cant arrest them as no proof or not watched directly, so its complicated case

hmmm i just wanted to refer for a point" even with your freedom in west,it does happen",sure,in egypt its plenty due to lack of education and morals and curse of drugs, we have too much corrupted people ( mubarak corrupted everything in egypt, even its people became corrupted by him)

thank you, the same to you
