    Nearly 70,000 Indian Muslim clerics have signed a fatwa against Isis and other terror groups saying they were "not Islamic organisations".

    Around 1.5 million Muslims visiting a shrine dedicated to a Sufi Islamic saint near the city of Ajmer in north western state of Rajasthan during the Urs religious festival have signed a petition against terrorist attacks.

    Mufti Mohammed Saleem Noori, one of the clerics who signed the fatwa, told the Times of India: "From Sunday onwards, when the annual Urs began, members of Dargah Aala Hazrat have been distributing forms among followers seeking signatures to show that those signing stand against terrorism.

    "Nearly 15 lakh (1.5m) Muslims have recorded their protest. Around 70,000 clerics from across the world, who were part of the event, passed the fatwa."

    He called on media organisations to stop referring to the groups - including Isis, the Taliban and al-Qaeda - as “Islamic”.

    Another cleric, Hazrat Subhan Raza Khan, said the decision had been made in the wake of the Paris attacks to spread out the message that the Muslim community condemns Islamist extremism.

    The head of the shrine at Ajmer, Mohammed Ehsan Raza Khan said: "It is written in the Quran that killing one innocent person is equivalent to killing all humanity".

    But the clerics also opposed the bombing campaign several Nato countries - including the UK whose parliament approved airstrikes last week - against Isis in Syria saying innocent women and children had been killed in the strikes.

    They said Western powers should focus on stopping the terrorists but not at the cost of civilian lives

    A very good move by them.
    The message is very clear that Indian muslims do not want anything to do with isis nor do they believe in their evil ideology.
    Although I dont like the clergies control over the life of Indian muslims.

    Muslims from every part of the world have denounced ISIS and other terror groups not just India but still it's a really good news.
    Tahirul Qadri (a Pakistani muslim scholar) has issued a 600 page fatwa against terrorists and their actions.
    "There is no place for any martyrdom and their act is never, ever to be considered jihad."

    Considering ISIS has no prospect of winning any war, its no surprise that muslims the world over has washed their hands off them.

    Its hardly a symbol of their peace loving nature.

    To the point,

    https://quran.com/4/95-96

    "Not equal are those believers remaining [at home] - other than the disabled - and the mujahideen, [who strive and fight] in the cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has preferred the mujahideen through their wealth and their lives over those who remain [behind], by degrees. And to both Allah has promised the best [reward]. But Allah has preferred the mujahideen over those who remain [behind] with a great reward -"


    To remove any confusion, The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind man's protest that he is unable to engage in JIHAD.

    ISIS were never winning.

    They never had any future and even moderately intelligent people knew that.

    That is exactly what we are discussing.

    This "fatwa" is the equivalent of Plausible deniability behind a flowery burqa.

    You only showed that "certain" terrorism will not be considered Jihad by that fatwa.

    The fatwa was not against Jihand.

    Yes that's right because there are 2 types of Jihad one a spiritual one and second against oppression terrorism and suicide bombings is not Jihad so that fatwa is perfectly ok for those people who think terrorism is Jihad.
