Bassem Youssef, an Egyptian satirist, has turned himself in after the country’s prosecutor-general issued an arrest warrant over allegations he insulted the president and Islam. The comedian is accused, among other things, of undermining the standing of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi.

Youssef denies the accusations saying, “If there is anyone who has insulted religion it is those who use Islam as a weapon for political reasons.” (Clip of Bassem’s show, El Bernameg, in the video)

The Arab Spring was supposed to bring democracy and change in Egypt but their new leaders have failed to make due on that promise.
