Opposition in Qatar, Oman and the UAE
Opposition groups


Qatar, the UAE and Oman: In none of these countries have Opposition groups emerged on the public scene. In Oman we have the case of the government moves in 1994 against an alleged Muslim Brotherhood network in the country, but no evidence of any public activity (or clandestine activity later claimed publicly) by Islamic opposition. The most active Islamist organization in Oman is Jami'at al-Tabligh, which had its origins in the Muslim community in India and has eschewed any overt political agenda (at least so far) in Oman. One hears talk in both the UAE and Qatar of ideological tendencies sympathetic with either salafi or Muslim Brotherhood style of Islamic political opposition. However, in neither case have such tendencies reached an organizational level that they have appeared on the public scene.
