Muslim Brotherhood: No Threats Against Iraqi Defense Minister or Any Other
Muslim Brotherhood: No Threats Against Iraqi Defense Minister or Any Other
Thursday, August 4,2016 20:11

Some media outlets published a fabricated, crudely drafted statement falsely alleging the Muslim Brotherhood has ruled that Iraqi Defense Minister Khaled Al-Obeidi is an apostate and an infidel, and has threatened to kill him.

The Muslim Brotherhood asserts the following:

1. We have not issued any statement of this kind. The alleged statement is fabricated to demonize us.

2. Our fundamental principles and constants dictate that we never call individuals or societies apostates or infidels, or issue rulings accusing them of apostasy. We – as is well known about us, and as we always declare – are "preachers and reformers, not judges".

3. Debates and disagreements that arise within communities and societies are only possible to settle through dialogue, not apostasy fatwas and death threats.

4. We appeal to the media for accuracy and caution. Please do not rush to publish false statements without checking their authenticity.

Dr Talaat Fahmi

Muslim Brotherhood Media Spokesman
