Article 7 says: “Entities or trends that advocate, instigate, justify or propagate racism, terrorism, “takfir” (declaring someone an infidel), sectarian cleansing, are banned, especially the Saddamist Baath Party in Iraq and its symbols, under any name. It will be not be allowed to be part of the multilateral political system in Iraq, which should be defined according to the law. The state will be committing to fighting terrorism in all its forms and will work to prevent its territory from being a base or corridor or an arena for its (terrorism's) activities.”
Terrorist Mojahedin-e khalq organization (MKO) has released a statement (a copy of which was published by Al-Hayat newspaper in London) along with a letter (by a number of international attorneys and European MPs) attached to it, Fars News Agency reported. Addressing George Bush, Tony Blair and Iraqi officials, this letter asks for change in new Iraqi constitution’s articles, which concern human rights. According to Al-Hayat, MKO has protested to articles 7 and 21 from the new constitutions. Article 7 says: “Entities or trends that advocate, instigate, justify or propagate racism, terrorism, “takfir” (declaring someone an infidel), sectarian cleansing, are banned, especially the Saddamist Baath Party in Iraq and its symbols, under any name. It will be not be allowed to be part of the multilateral political system in Iraq, which should be defined according to the law. The state will be committing to fighting terrorism in all its forms and will work to prevent its territory from being a base or corridor or an arena for its (terrorism's) activities.” And the content of a clause in article 21 is as follows: “Political asylum shall not be granted to those accused of committing international or terror crimes or to anyone who has caused Iraq harm.” The statement says that banning the activities of an organization, on charges of defending terrorism, should be determined by an independent and impartial court. “Not granting political asylum to those who’ve committed international or terror crimes, or those who have harmed Iraq is in contradiction with the first article of 1951 UN Convention on the rights of refugees,” the statement adds. According to IRIB, Kurdish paper “Asoa” also wrote: “MKO protested to Article 7 of Iraq’s new constitution (which concerns establishing organizations and groups based on terrorist or racist ideologies) by releasing a statement”.
