It seems that there are double standards in fighting terrorism. For instance, this question is raised that how the police ignores the activities of NCRI and allows them to raise money but cracks down on Islamic Freedom Party?
Following the approval of UK Anti-Terrorism Law by the House of Commons, a prominent Muslim figure criticized double standards of the government in approaching terrorist groups. This law, passed with 472 yes votes, enables the law enforcement to keep terrorist suspects under arrest for 90 days. Supporting and encouraging terrorist activities are also considered as crimes. Some of MPs have criticized the content of this law. Massoud Shajareh, a prominent Muslim leader questioned UK police for having double standards in approaching the issue of terrorism. Islamic Human Rights Commission, chaired by Shajareh, had earlier asked the UK government to ban a meeting by Iranian opposition group in UK parliament. National Council of Resistance, political wing of the MKO (listed as terrorist organization in UK, U.S. and EU), held a meeting in UK parliament in which a number of MPs took part. Shajareh told UPI: “NCRI is the political wing of the Iranian terrorist organization, the MKO which has been banned in the US and Europe. In addition, this council itself has been declared a terrorist group by the US and EU.” “Terrorism Act 200 bans supporting any terrorist organization or an organization whose members have also the membership of a banned organization. The punishment for violating this law can be 10 years in prison.” He said police appeared negligent since it didn’t act to arrest the conductors of the meeting according to the law. He said such moves would convince Muslims that such a law has been approved only for political advantages. “It seems that there are double standards in fighting terrorism. For instance, this question is raised that how the police ignores the activities of NCRI and allows them to raise money but cracks down on Islamic Freedom Party,” he said. “Do they allow, the Al-Qaeda, as they do for Iranian terrorist group, to hold a conference in London on the future of Iraq and Afghanistan?” he asked.
