Montreal Gazette : Terror acts condemned

3, 2010

A leading Muslim scholar in Britain issued a fatwa yesterday condemning terrorists and suicide bombers, saying they had no justification in the name of Islam.

Pakistan-born Dr. Tahir ul-Qadri said in a news conference there were no "ifs or buts" about terrorism.

He said he wanted to convey the message that acts of terrorism cut people off as true followers of Islam.

Qadri said his 600-page fatwa, or religious ruling, was an "absolute" condemnation of terrorism without "any excuses or pretexts."
