The claim ‘All Muslims will stand with Egyptian rights in the Nile River’ has triggered a response from many Ethiopians especially the generalization in his comment prompted many angry replies from the Ethiopian Muslim community.The replies to the tweet come in many shapes and sizes and some of them are listed below. One tweet from Derese Kassa emphasizes that religion has nothing to do with politics and another tweet from Moonira condemns his allegation by asking him how he can represent all Muslims.
All Muslims stand today with the Egyptians’ rights in the Nile rever. Egypt is NOT alone. The Muslim World is backing it in its negotiations with Ethiopia🌷#EgyptNileRights— د. سـ لـ طـ ـان الـ ـحـ ـربـ ـي (@s_alharbi2020) June 13, 2020
A person named Justice, asks which real Muslim supports the non-justiciability of the matter.
I wonder from where you get the audacity to think you can speak on behalf of all Muslims. I don't remember appointing you as my representative, 😏 I am a Muslim and stand with #Ethiopia."The Muslim world" is not your small circle. #itsmydam🇪🇹— ᴍᴏᴏɴɪʀᴀ ᴀ. (@MooniraAbdm) June 14, 2020
Melese Girmay, another twitter user and an angered response giver, says that "Islam is all about justice. But this is all about injustice" in his comment against the tweet posted.

Egypt's demands are unjust & inhumane. Selfless Ethiopians will defend its rights is another remark made by Alemu, another angry response to the previous post.
Islam is all about justice. But this is all about injustice. 😡 They want to control our own river in our own sovereign land. They were never grateful for the fertile soil they have robbed at the expense of our people. It's an eternal honor to die fighting this injustice.— melese girmaye (@MeleseGirmaye) June 14, 2020
😀😀😀 you have the audacity to make unsubstantiated claims aka lies. Keep doing that. Ethiopia doesn't need anyone's help to make use of its natural resources & lift its citizens from poverty. Egypt's demands are unjust & inhumane. Selfless Ethiopians will defend its rights— Alemu G. Ashebir (@ALEMUGASHIE) June 13, 2020
