Wednesday, March 03, 2010
LONDON: 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, founder of the Minhaj-ul-Quran movement, said there were no "ifs or buts" about terrorism,
in a news conference attended by Metropolitan Police officers, legislators, charitable organisations and think-tanks. 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 was an "absolute" condemnation of terrorism without "any excuses or pretexts".
