A study for the Swedish government questions whether public money should be spent on groups linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, a pan-Islamic organisation designated as a terrorist group in the UAE and other countries.
Sweden's Islamic Federation, the Stockholm Mosque and the Swedish Muslim Council reportedly have ties to the Brotherhood, Malmö University social anthropologist Aje Carlbom said. Carlbom wrote the report on behalf of MBS, the agency responsible for civil defence and emergency management in Sweden.
The 70-page report, Islamic Activism in a Multicultural Context, questions whether Swedish groups should get state support if they are linked to the Muslim organisation, Swedish Radio reported. Carlbom also questioned whether some of the Swedish groups are working in the public interest.
