Qatari FM Says Muslim Brotherhood Activities in Bahrain Reveal Double Standards

2017-07-07 - 4:52 p

Bahrain Mirror: Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammad bin Abdul Rahman Al Thani said that the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood in Bahrain reveal double standards. This comes in response to Saudi Arabia and its allies' step to name the Brotherhood a terrorist group, and accuse Qatar of sponsoring it.

In an interview with CNN, Al Thani denied any political presence of the Muslim Brotherhood in his country, saying that "it's a group active in Bahrain, and is represented in its parliament."

At the time when Bahrain dubs the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group, the latter enjoys representation in the parliament, security and judicial apparatuses, which triggered vast criticism of Bahrain for accusing Qatar of sponsoring the brotherhood.
