Top Pak Ulema issue fatwa declaring suicide attacks ‘un-Islamic’
Lahore: Top Pakistan cleric Allama Tahirul Qadri and chairman of the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Chairman, Mufti Muneebur Rehman have issued a Fatwa declaring suicide attacks and bomb blasts ‘un-Islamic’.
Issuing the Fatwa here, which would be released across the world in three languages, Qadri said, “Any armed struggle against an Islamic state fell in the domain of rebellion.”
Rehman added that Islam prohibits killing of innocent people, and that such barbaric acts could not be justified.
Interior Minister Rehman Malik, while welcoming the fatwa against extremist activities, termed it a ‘positive step’.
On Saturday, while condemning the suicide attack on a mosque in Rawalpindi in which 40 people were killed, including several army officials, Malik had urged Ulemas (spiritual leaders) to issue Fatwa against suicide attackers.
He said the attack was a reaction to the on going military operation in South Waziristan and Swat.
