Islamic scholar issues fatwa against terrorism
From CBC News
A prominent Islamic scholar issued a religious ruling against terrorism and suicide bombings at a speech in London Tuesday.
Muhammad Tahir ul-Qadri, a leading scholar of Sufism, the tradition within Islam that focuses on peace and tolerance, isn’t the first Islamic teacher to denounce acts of terrorism.
But Qadri’s 600-page judgment, or fatwa, is among the harshest denouncements of the theological arguments used by militant groups like al-Qaeda.
“Whatever these terrorists are doing, it’s not martyrdom,” said Qadri on Tuesday.
