The head of a worldwide Muslim movement which has thousands of followers in Britain has issued an Islamic religious ruling - known as a 'Fatwa' - condemning terrorism.

Pakistan born Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri warned suicide bombers that they are 'destined for hell'. The founder of the global Minhaj-ul-Quran movement said attacks against civilian targets were condemned by Islam.

Shahid Mursaleen, from Minhaj-ul-Quran UK, said: "He has hit hard on the terrorists as it prevents Islamists from considering suicide bombers as 'martyrs'. This fatwa injects doubt into the minds of potential suicide bombers."
