The Muslim Brotherhood will send the British government documents outlining the group’s principles and values while rejecting accusation of terrorism, a leader of the group said yesterday.
Ibrahim Munir said: “These principles and values will show the British government that the group does not have anything to do with the charges against them with regards to terrorism and violence.”
Munir explained that the documents “describe the relationship between members of the group in any country and the government of that country,” and is inspired by the “declaration of coexistence published by British Muslims in the context of a pluralistic society” issued by the group in November 2002 in the wake of accusations that Islamist groups were involved in the bombing of the twin towers of the World Trade Centre in America on September 11, 2001.
“This is our vision of a peaceful coexistence in a society which is multicultural, contains numerous religions and races. It is those principles that must govern the overall relations between civilisations and religions,” Munir said.
