Pak issues fatwa against terrorism

Pakistan government today issued a fatwa signed by over 1,800 Islamic scholars from different schools of thought against the use of violence, including suicide bombings, for religious purposes.

Titled as 'Paigham-e-Pakistan' (the message of Pakistan), the fatwa issued at a grand ceremony here was prepared under the supervision of Islamabad-based International Islamic University.

Addressing the ceremony, President Mamnoon Hussain said the launch of national narrative on counter-terrorism manifested that the whole nation was extremely serious on the issue.

"I believe that this decree, prepared in the light of true teachings of Islam, will transform their hearts and pave the way for their salvation in the hereinafter," he said, referring to radicals. PTI
