Ennahdha denies any relation of its president Rached Ghannouchi with “terrorist entities” list

Ennahdha denied “any relation of the president of the movement Rached Ghannouchi with the list published by some countries classifying some people and organisations as terrorists”, as reported by media.

“To mingle the name of Ghannouchi (on this list) is an unfortunate attempt to undermine his thought and his long militant career in favour of freedom, democracy and the struggle against dictatorship, extremism and terrorism”, said a party statement released Thursday.

The movement reserves the right to sue the parties who propagate these allegations, it warned.

Ennahdha expressed surprise at “involving the International Union of Muslim Schollars in this list”, calling for “ensuring the neutrality of institutions and Schollars known for their integrity and tolerance”.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain announced on Wednesday the “addition of two entities and 11 people to the list established as part of efforts to combat terrorism”, reported Saudi news agency.

“The World Islamic Council and the International Union of Muslim Schollars are on the list … They praise terrorism through the instrumentalisation of Islamic discourse and its exploitation as a cover for facilitating various terrorist activities,” said the same source.

These countries announced on June 5, 2017 the break of their diplomatic relations with Qatar accusing it of supporting terrorism and terrorist groups. They subsequently published a list of organisations and personalities classified as “terrorist entities” including the president of the International Union of Muslim Schollars Youssef Qaradaoui.
