Hyderabad: Condemning the deadly deeds of ISIS, AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday said the activities of the terror group have nothing to do with the religion of Islam.
"What they have done so far, all the Islamic scholars of various schools of thought have condemned it. They have raped people, killed people. Not only killed, in a bloody way, they have decapitated bodies, they have cut heads. They have burnt a person.
"These are nothing to do with Islam or teachings of Islam. They have to be condemned. They are bloody murderers and rapists," the Hyderabad MP told reporters here.
As for some youth from Hyderabad reportedly trying to join ISIS, Owaisi said none can break law and that the youth should speak to religious scholars.
Owaisi was speaking at a press conference held here in connection with the "centenary death anniversary" of Hazrat Anwarullah Farooqui, founder of Jamia Nizamia, a 144-year-old institution of Islamic studies.
As part of the events, a seminar would be held on February 14 and 15 and a public meeting on March 20, organisers said.
