Killing innocent non-Muslims un-Islamic: Muslim scholars

Christian Pakistanis  ProtestTerming Sunday’s suicide bombings on church in Peshawar in which 83 people, including children and women, were killed as terrorist act, Pakistan’s religious leaders have said killing innocent minority members was un-Islamic.

“Islam does not allow killing of innocent non-Muslims,” Sunni Muslim group – Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) spokesman Nawaz Kharal said.

He said a decree was issued by 30 religious leaders, which termed the attack not only un-Islamic but a criminal act and a major sin. “Islam does not allow attacks on innocent minorities and makes it mandatory to protect their lives and property.”

The decree said it was duty of the government to provide security and protection to minorities. “Islam teaches that places of worship of non-Muslims should not be demolished or damaged,” it said.

‘In Islam, murder of human being amounts to murder of humanity’

It said those who attacked Christians in Peshawar in Pakistan’s restive Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province had “mutilated the face of Islam”. “In Islam murder of an innocent human being is the murder of the entire humanity,” the decree said.

The decree further said while Pakistan government was making peace overtures, militant group Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) continued their terrorist activities, most recently with the bombing of a Peshawar church.

“The government without receiving any assurances from Taliban have released many terrorists. Talking to militants who had killed hundreds of Pakistanis amounts to rubbing salt on the wounds of the bereaved,” it further said.

The decree urged Pakistan government to bring the perpetrators of the Peshawar church attack to book. “They havë also violated constitution of the country which guaranteed complete protection to the minorities.

Sunni Ittehad Council will oppose talks with TTP

SIC chairman Hamid Raza Rizvi said the organisation would continue to oppose talks with TTP militants. “We condemn all acts of terrorism and would continue to do so. While Taliban were seeking guarantees before dialogue in the form of prisoner releases, they were not even prepared to guarantee a ceasefire during the talks,” he said.

A splinter group affiliated with TTP has claimed responsibility for Sunday’s suicide bombing on church in Peshawar.

Pakistan’s prominent religious scholars Maulana Muhammad Taqi Usmani, Maulana Saleemullah, Dr Abdul Razzaq Sikandar and Maulana Muhammad Rafi Usmani of Deobandi thought issued a joint statement in which they condemned the suicide bombing on church in Peshawar.

Terming the attack against the teachings of Quran and Sunnah, they said, “Islamic Shariah gives full rights of protection to the life and property of all citizens without any distinction of religion. Islam has even defined strict punishments for those who do not honour the right of protection to life and property of any citizen.”

‘Religious places can’t be attacked even during Jehad’

The religious leaders said even during the course of ‘announced Jihad’, nobody is allowed to attack religious or worship places of any religion. “In the presence of all these teachings and orders of Islam, such attacks using the name of the religion are meant to defame the religion of Islam and the Muslims”.

“No doubt thousands of Muslims, including women and children, have been killed in US drone attacks in Pakistan but innocent citizens can never be attacked to avenge the drone attacks. It is illogical to state that such attacks to kill innocent citizens are carried out in retaliation against the drone attacks,” they said.

Majlis Wahdat-i-Muslimeen leader Nasir Sherazi said terrorists were targeting everyone including Sunnis and Shias.

“The attacks continue despite government’s talks about peace. Muslim leaders must speak out against acts of terrorism carried out in the name of jihad”.

Several other prominent religious leaders have also condemned the suicide bombing on church and termed it a terrorist act.

    I think an eraser needs to be put in to action, and all the errors in Islamic teachings should be rubbed out leaving only the peaceful passages, that should settle the confusion in its translation……………………………..
    Oh, and there will be much, much less to memorise.

    These terrorist who are in no way real muslims, only know one thing, killing anybody who opposes their fake religion teachings. To take ones life because of some piece of shit who has promised you virgins in paradise is the lowest of low. May these pigs or any other pig who commits such an atrocity burn in the fires of hell. And may God protect our Christian brothers and sisters who want nothing but to live in peace.

    • IraniAngel

      amen to that… those terrorists who are in no way moslems also include the pigs nastyrallah, xamenei and xomeini, may they as well burn in hell for what they have done to the iranians during the last 30 years, enshallah

      • Peaceforleb

        Irani, you can’t be serious. Please tell me Irani, when was the last time Hezbollah blew up a church or the last time they decapitated another human being. Hezbollah maybe a lot of things, however like these animals they are not. Furthermore, I can’t believe you are blaming Hezbollah for the Irainian leaderships Failures. Please tell me, what has the hezob done to Iran for the last 30 years.

        • IraniAngel

          hizb has sponged on iran for the last 30 years while ordinary iranians struggle in order to survive. Thats what they have done to iran for the last 30 years. iranian money shouldnt be wasted on hizb when iranians suffer under proverty. how is that fair? how is that human? how is that logical? how is that islamic? in iran we have a saying which goes something like: a lantern that is needed at home, dont even give it away to the mosque!

          Peace, dont mean to kill your vibe, but it is a known fact that in Lebanon Churches are frequently turned to mosques. There is not any political party responsible for this, but both Sunnis and Shiites alike are responsible for this.

      That is very weird who struggle only for virgin.You know not a bout our religion.We struggle only for justice.Terrorist named by the west.Why you can,t read what Christian has done in history.Too many atrocities perpetrated by them.Read about dark age.Read a bout world war 1 and world war 2.Who participated in that war and all atrocities.Read a bout colonial age.Who are invaders and oppressors.Read its all.Not only blame other side.Don,t be bad historian.

      • 5thDrawer

        Yes, war is war, and religion is only used as a front-cover story.
        Terrorists – people who generally can’t think for themselves but want to kill something – can be led by the stories in religions, or by any other supposed ’cause’.
        The Fallacy of any, when it purports to ‘help’ humans, is noted when killing for it begins.

        Let us sum it up… Christians built a space station, have been to the moon, and got rovers to Mars… What have you done new in your miserable shitty country? I wonder sometimes whose side is God on? Those who made it close to see the future of humanity and heaven or those living in the sewers? Answer me that!

    • zabada

      God will protect you from hell?.Since you worship his prophet Isa pbuh,not him,true god, who can,t see him.You are wrong you will in hell fire along with your side.I m sad to sad that.But I feel more miserable if I not said that.We muslims who will fill in paradise forever.And you and your side will fill in the hell fire fore ever.It is biggest sins to worship his prophet Isa (Jesus)pbuh.A human can,t be a god.This is weird. Even we are terrorist we will fill in paradise,since some of us became terrorist to protect our people from oppressor,Christian oppressor from the west or Russia.Not to killing without a cause.If you want to live in peace so don,t harm us even a hair.There is a counted Syiit will follow us, Sunni,in paradise Others are weird as your side.Like Jews and Christians they corrupted their holy books with their own hands and gone astray far a way.Sorry to say.This is true.

      • Peaceforleb

        What are you talking about you idiot, I am a Moslem. The difference between you and me is I see Christian’s as my brothers and sisters. As well as Jews or any other person who chooses to follow his or hers religion in peace. You are just as brainwashed as the rest of the terrorist. Good luck with you virgins Zabri.

      • Zabada, whatever you had for breakfast before this comment was pure truth syrum!!! your profile and state of mind is clearly presented in this comment….read it over and over again and will see that you are simply repeating the poison injected in you by a not so good friend in your circle convincing you of what you said above to make you feel better about the failure of FALSE religion
        If your heart or liver fails, you are physically sick! if your religion does not result in love and peace you are spiritually sick! terrorists and paradise do not go hand in hand as you mention!! this is not a teaching from a sterile holy source. just as a baby cannot drink mil forever and grow properly without solid food people in search of god and truth can not simply accept what is being served to them as spiritual food…..you must dig deeper by seeking, pursuing, and finding truth that would yield better results than you came up with.
        I know it would not interest you but jesus did not profess to be god nor did he accept any glory or worship to the extent that he would not accept being addressed as good.
        truth is like gold or diamonds Zabada you are not going to find it on the side of the road or in a dumpster, you have to dig deep and endure a lot of hurdles before you find it and the biggest indication that you are at the right place is by its results being nothing like you see today by so many professing to be followers yet justify horrid things as you just did in your above comment.

        • Peaceforleb

          Geo, wont make a difference what you say my friend. The crawls of hate are to deep. The sad thing is there are many people like Zabada who claim to be real moslems however are unable to see what this religion truly tries to teach. If Islam taught me to hate my fellow man because of what his religious belief is, then I would denounce this religion. My father always taught me growing up to show respect when respect is shown to you. Irrespective of what a persons religious belief is. And I am instilling the same teaching in my children.

    Misunderstood religion lead them to be terrorist,They interpret religion is politic.This is wrong.They are bad people in any sect of believe.They have strong believe but they are lack of brain.When the Prophet asked by a man..”What is religion ?”…The prophet said..”.religion is good behaviour”.There are not aword that the prophet said religion is politic.Some muslims seem having their own interpretation on Islam.This lead too many clash in muslims world and harm some western who intervene on their events..Lack of civilization lead them to having lack of advance knowledge,even on their own religion.Only civilization will open their mind.
