    Default A new, anti-terrorism, fatwa

    From memri

    On May 31, 2008, thousands of Islamic clerics and madrassa teachers from across India converged in the Indian capital of New Delhi for the Anti-Terrorism and Global Peace Conference, held by the Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind (Assembly of Indian Clerics), a countrywide network of Islamic scholars. The conference issued an anti-terrorism fatwa, which is being called the world's first unequivocal fatwa against Islamic terror.

    Interesting that it is Indian Islamic clerics who first came up with this - I had been hoping it would be an American or at least Western cleric. Perhaps South Asian Islam is reorienting its focus away from India and Kashmir and back towards the Middle East?
