Muslim Association of Britain

The Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) had for many years been the most active organization in the UK Muslim Brotherhood. Many of the leaders of the MAB left in 2007 to form the British Muslim Initiative (BMI). According to an Israeli think-tank report, the breakup appeared to be the result of a conflict between traditionalists in the MAB who were unhappy with the high level of involvement in UK left-wing politics while those who who formed the BMI wished such activity to continue.Since then, it appears that the BMI is moribund and that the MAB has resumed its role as the central organization of the Muslim Brotherhood in the UK. Anas Al-Tikriti, the former leader of the BMI and the son of Usama Al-Tikriti one of the leaders of the Iraqi  the Muslim Brotherhood, declared recently that he has returned to the MAB as its Chairman.
