Suicide bombers declared "unislamic"

Recommended Posts

A prominent Muslim organisation in Britain has issued a fatwa on suicide bombings and terrorism — declaring them “un-Islamic”.

Minhaj-ul-Quran, a organisation based on Sufi principles which advises the Government on how to combat radicalisation in Muslim youth, launched its 600-page religious verdict in Central London this morning, condemning the perpetrators of terrorist explosions and suicide bombings.

The fatwa condemns suicide bombers saying that they are destined for Hell, countering extremist propaganda that Islamist terrorists will enter paradise after death.

The document is written by Muslim scholar Dr Muhammed Tahir ul-Qadri, a former government adviser in Pakistan and friend of the former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, and the founder of the increasingly influential Minhaj-ul-Quran movement.

In it, suicide bombings and terrorism are prohibited as “totally un-Islamic”.

This is a follow-up of an earlier Times-Online news report (found HERE if anyone's interested). This sounded like an interesting point to discuss as far as World politics/world events go.

I would guess that the average Muslim would have no issues with Qadri's fatwa. The question is; will it have an effect on the young mixed-up Muslims whom the extremists attempt to recruit?
“Extremist groups based in Britain recruit youth by brainwashing them that they will — with certainty — be rewarded in the next life and Dr Qadri’s fatwa has removed this key intellectual factor from their minds.”

Indeed, let's hope that this is at least a good first step.

The annoying thing for me (despite not being a Muslim) is that most people who read this believe that the majority of Muslims support the terrorist activities. I'm glad that at least one organised Muslim group has taken an open stance against this. Maybe it will inspire other groups who believe the same to take similar stances (not necessarily issuing Fatwa's, but at the least condemning these actions as not true representations of the majority Islamic beliefs).

Two Middle East mothers are sitting in a cafe chatting over a plate of tabouli and a pint of goat's milk.

The older of the two pulls a bag out of her purse and starts flipping through photos. They start reminiscing. 'This is my oldest son Mohammed. He would have been 24 years old now.' 'Yes, I remember him as a baby' says the other mother cheerfully. 'He's a martyr now though' mum confides. 'Oh, so sad dear' says the other.

And this is my second son Kalid. He would have been 21.' 'Oh, I remember him,' says the other happily, 'he had such curly hair when he was born'. 'He's a martyr too' says mum quietly.

'Oh, gracious me ...' Says the other. '

And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Ahmed. He would have been 18, she whispers.

'Yes' says the friend enthusiastically, 'I remember when he first started school with my Achmet'.

'He's a martyr also,' says mum, with tears in her eyes.

After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks wistfully at the photographs and says...

'They blow up so fast, don't they...'

Itsnotoutthere, want to hear about the guy sent to blow up London buses? If you do, ask and I'll post about it on the General Off-Topic Discussion Board in the Jokes and Humour page. :)
