A renowned Islamic scholar Tahir Ul Qadri has declared Fatwa against terrorism and suicide bombing. This is the first time that a famous Muslim scholar has announced Fatwa against Islamic extremists at a time the extremists have intensified the suicide bombing in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq in the name of Islam killing innocent people.

There must be complete rejection against terrorism from the Islamic World, Dr Qadri said while announcing Fatwa against the terrorists at a packed press conference attended by Islamic scholars, ministers, MPs, ambassadors and other renowned figures in London. Who is Dr Qadri?

What is Fatwa?

There are many Fatwas declared so far but the first well-known fatwas I came to know was declared against famous Indian born British writer Salman Rushdie in 1989 by the Iranian Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Copies of his famous book The Satanic Verses were burnt and the book was banned in many countries. I had paid several hundred Rupees to buy the photo copy of that book in India. Another Fatwa was declared against Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasrin, who wrote Lajja (Shame). (Read some of the Fatwas:

In his 600 page Fatwa, he has presented various references from Islamic holy book Quoran and has given detail explanation why the extremists must be strongly rejected by the Islamic world.

    Great topic Chiran.
    Fatwa has been used mainly as term for punishment of people who do not respect Islam. It was used as term a call on jihad against non believers. Now, we can see that fatwa can be used against those who are extremists and fundamentalists. Great! Thank you help to people has better review of this religion.
