Jamaat-e-Islami upholds ideology of Muslim Brotherhood, which prescribes Sharia state and strongly denounces democracy and democratic institutions. For years, Qatar-funded AL Jazeera has been under the control of Muslim Brotherhood. For this reason, Doha-based Al Jazeera is being used by Jamaat-e-Islami too as its mouthpiece. Jamaat and Muslim Brotherhood have in the past used Al Jazeera in destabilizing Middle East as well as a number of nations in the world. For the past few years, this notorious broadcast network has been desperately publishing false, fabricated and even provocative contents against Bangladesh, with the evil desire of toppling-down the democratically elected government in Dhaka.
Most of the supporters of Al Jazeera make frantic bids in rejecting the claim of this broadcast network being under the control of Muslim Brotherhood, Jamaat-e-Islami and other radical Islamic groups. But, Qatar’s former Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim had on document endorsed this fact. According to a leaked audio recording that was captured during conversation of the Qatari Prime Minister and Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, when Gaddafi said: “Al jazeera is controlled, members of the Muslim Brotherhood are controlling the programs on Al Jazeera”, the Qatari Prime Minister in response said: “I agree with you. I am telling you – this is true”.
The recordings were secretly taped by Gaddafi during his meetings with world leaders in Libya, which have since been leaked following the Libyan leader’s death in 2011.
In another recording leaked from the same year, Gaddafi and the former prime minister can reportedly be heard discussing plans to carve up Saudi Arabia.
Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim did not deny the recording and said that the issue was discussed to appease Gaddafi.
In 2013, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani handed over power to his son, current Emir Sheikh Tamim al-Thani. Hamad bin Jassim stepped down from his positions in government at the time and reportedly has strained relations with the current emir.
It may be mentioned here that, Muslim Brotherhood, along with Islamic State (ISIS) and Al Qaeda have all been classified as terrorist organizations by the US and other countries, including Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt etcetera.
