The Muslim World League announced the termination of the membership of Yusuf al-Qaradawi after being classified on the terrorism list announced by Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt.

The Association tweeted on its official account in the social networking site Twitter, that "based on the classification issued, the Islamic World League has ended the membership of Yusuf al-Qaradawi in the Islamic Fiqh Academy."


The Association also issued a statement in which it declared its full support for the statement issued by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain on Friday with regard to the list of prohibited terrorists.

"This classification confirms Saudi Arabia's and Saudi Arabia's commitment to fight terrorism and to block its sources of funding and support," the statement said. "The international community must intensify its efforts to counter the activities of terrorist organizations, as well as its feeders and the incubators," added the statement.

The Muslim World League called on all those connected with these lists, especially the members of their committees, the leadership of their institutions to declare their rejection of his ideologies and to stay safe and free of such ideas.

The four countries announced at dawn on Friday in a quadrate statement the names of individuals and entities sponsored by Qatar as prohibited and wanted terrorists.

The statement included a list of 12 entities and 59 persons housed and supported by Qatar, posing a threat to security and peace in those four countries and in the region with their terrorist activities.
