According to the website of the government of the United Arab Emirates, the association, which is also known as Rabitamoskeen, is listed on the terror list.
The new terror list, published on Saturday, stressed the importance of increasing public awareness for the listed organizations.
The news came out at the same time the Norwegian Foreign Minister Børge Brende visited the country, wrote NTB. The Norwegian Embassy in Abu Dhabi has contacted with the authorities in the UAE to clarify the matter.
The Islamic Council (IRN), an umbrella organization for over 40 Muslim organizations in Norway, reacted to the listing. Secretary General of IRN, Mehtap Afsar says to TV2 that it is a surprising and erroneous listing.
Afsar believes stampling of Det Islamske Forbundet as a terrorist organization testifies a lack of information.
