Muslim Association of Britain Revives Website


The Muslim Association of Britain (MAB), a part of the U.K. Muslim Brotherhood, has updated its website for the first time in over a year and has indicated that a new site is about to be launched. Many of the leaders of the MAB left last year to form a new organization known as the British Muslim Initiative (BMI). According to sources in the U.K, the breakup appears to be the result of a conflict between traditionalists in the MAB who were unhappy with the high level of involvement in U.K left-wing politics while those who who formed the BMI wished such activity to continue. Prior to the split, the MAB often joined in coalitions with far-left U.K groups such as the Stop the War Coalition and the Respect Party. The MAB website indicates that the organization is still part of the European Muslim Brotherhood umbrella group known as the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe (FIOE) as well as the U.K. umbrella group the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), also dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood. The revival of the website suggest that the seemingly moribund organization which had been active only in Scotland, will be resuming its activities.
