New Delhi: A Muslim activist has claimed that scores of Muftis, Imams and Islamic scholars have issued a fatwa against the leaders, fighters and followers of Middle-East terrorist group IS, and termed its actions as against the basic tenets of Islam.
Abdur Rahman Anjaria, president of the Mumbai’s Islamic Defence Cyber Cell, in a statement, claimed that he has collected the edicts from Muslims scholars and leaders over the past few months.
“Islam shuns violence while Daesh (IS) perpetuates it,” the edict said.
It urged the international community to take immediate steps to eliminate this terror group that has caused mayhem in the region and is spreading its tentacles in the South Asian region.
These copies of 15 volume fatwas were sent to UN secretary general.
