It also highlights the role and efforts of the youth of Egypt to change the regime to bring democracy in the country. Moreover, this paper highlights the causes which led the Egyptians to come out of their houses to dethrone Hosni Mubarak. It is described that the continuous state of emergency, excessive and unlimited powers of law enforcement agencies, extra judicial orders of the Interior Ministry, and the success of Tunisians to dethrone long-term autocratic rule Zen-el-Abidin Bin Ali forced the Egyptians to go against the autocratic ruler and to demand for change the regime.  The excessive use of power by the governmental authorities to curb the protesters is also the part of this research.
