Thank you for your reading and interest in the news Muslim Brotherhood should be proscribed as a terrorist organisation, UK parliament hears and now with details
Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - A British MP has called for the Muslim Brotherhood to be proscribed as a terrorist group as politicians criticised its intolerance towards other faiths during a parliamentary debate over the persecution of Christians.
Ian Paisley of Nothern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party said he would raise the matter with Britain’s interior minister in the coming days.
The Westminster session also questioned why the UK government publicly said it stood for freedom of religion yet rolled out “the red carpet” for leaders such as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who was accused of “being a problem for Christians”.
“The Government should also move… to proscribe the Muslim Brotherhood, an organisation which inspires hatred and attacks on Christians at home and abroad,” said Mr Paisley during the parliamentary session on Thursday.
“This is an organisation that uses and abuses the beliefs of a whole culture to attack Christians and others, which is frightening and wrong. It hides in and uses mosques illegitimately for its hatred against Christians, and it is right and proper that the full facts about the Muslim Brotherhood in this nation are brought out,” he added.
Mr Paisley also referred to the recent visit to London by Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan, who reportedly told MPs the Brotherhood turned Muslim’s “sacred beliefs into a tool of hatred”. Prince Faisal expressed amazement, Mr Paisley said, that the UK government had not banned the Muslim Brotherhood from the country.
Bob Stewart, an MP from the ruling Conservative Party, drew attention to the Brotherhood’s duplicitous nature as he recalled a visit to Egypt in 2011 to meet with the group following the ousting of President Hosni Mubarak.
“They assured me that they had no political intentions in Egypt and that they did not want to govern the country. They are now the reason for the persecution of Christians in Egypt, and that persecution is pretty full-on,” he said.
Mr Paisley, the MP from Northern Ireland, also criticised a highly controversial mobile phone app released last year by a company chaired by Qatar-based Yusuf Al Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s ideologue.
The app, which could at one point be downloaded from Google Play and Apple’s App Store, was accused of propagating anti-Semitism.
“We can see where this fanaticism can go and how it is driven,” Mr Paisley said.
Qaradawi has been named as a terrorist by a number of countries including the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt.
