Washington, Nov 17 Donald Trump, President elect of the United States of America would label the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organisation. This would be the first step that he would take in his war against terror. During his high decibel campaign, he had spoken about wiping out terrorist networks.
A report in The Clarion Project states the Donald Trump administration plans to label Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organisation when he takes office on January 20.
The Muslim Brotherhood has been accused of financing terror attacks for several years now. This outfit was founded in Egypt in March 1928. The outfit preached a radical form of Islam. However in the recent years it has been accused of financing terror networks across the globe.
The outfit is already banned in Russia and five other countries including Saudi Arabia. Many in the US administration felt that a ban was long overdue. Former Rep. Michele Bachmann, who introduced similar legislation during her last term in office, said it has been clear since the Holy Land Foundation terror financing trial in 2007-08 that the Brotherhood is working through front groups toward an agenda of Islamic supremacy, which the Brotherhood calls "civilization jihad."
