Controversy every year in Egypt.. January 25 anniversary between revolution and conspiracy

Cairo – On these days every year, Egyptians’ comments about the anniversary of the January 25 Revolution are resurrected, and they become the talk of the hour on social media, and the related and interacting hashtags topped the communication platforms for several days.

The revolution of January 25, 2011 overthrew the late President Hosni Mubarak after 3 decades in power, after 18 days of the revolution and the sit-in in Tahrir Square and chanting slogans calling for “livelihood, freedom, and social justice” against the backdrop of widespread poverty, corruption and injustice for decades.

The outbreak of the January revolution coincided with the 70th Egyptian Police Day, and that was one of the most important reasons that led to the revolution due to the repressive police practices during the Mubarak era and their control of the political scene.

Yesterday, Sunday, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, during his speech at the celebration of Police Day, congratulated the Egyptian people on the occasion of the January 25 revolution, stressing that it expressed the Egyptians’ aspiration to build a new future for this country in which all people enjoy a decent livelihood.

Activists and tweeters stopped at this congratulations as a paradox. Al-Sisi attacked the January 25 revolution more than once, and repeated his accusation that it was behind the country’s ruin and loss, noting that one of the reasons for demolishing the state is to move its people and turn it into a tool for its destruction.

With the closure of all roads to go out and demonstrate or celebrate the anniversary of January 25, the believers in the revolution intensified their presence on social media platforms, stressing that the light of its flame continues, even if it is extinguished like the eternal stars.

On the other hand, others attacked the January 25 revolution, describing it as a foreign conspiracy against the country, and that it aimed to overthrow the Egyptian state and drag it to the fate of countries in the region such as Syria, Yemen and Libya had it not been for the intervention of the Egyptian armed forces.

Some took advantage of the 70th anniversary of the Egyptian police to express their solidarity with the policemen and to recall their sacrifices for the sake of the homeland, while attacking the January 25 Revolution and its symbols of young people, describing them as hackers and traitors.
