Pak religious leaders declare suicide attacks 'haram'

While this might seem obvious to the near total majority of normal, thinking people in the Muslim world and without, still the formal declaration forbidding suicide/genocide coming from several important, established, and respected theological schools in the region is a vital step toward solving the problem of violent militants who pervert religious teachings to defend their bestial horrors.

Lahore, Dec. 14 : Religious leaders from various schools of thought across Pakistan have termed suicide attacks 'haram' or un-Islamic.

Former Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Qazi Hussain Ahmed has said that Islam doesn't allow the killing of "Muslim brothers" by launching suicide attacks and bomb blasts.

"Suicide attacks are not allowed in Islam and our religion does not allow the killing of innocent people. The murder of a Muslim is in fact the killing of all humanity," the Daily Times quoted Ahmed, as saying.

He added that US drone attacks in Pakistani territory were a violation of international law and the country's sovereignty.

Meanwhile, several religious leaders in Punjab passed a unanimous resolution declaring that suicide attacks were 'haram' (prohibited).

Presented by Muttahida Ulema Board Chairman Sahibzada Fazle Karim after a meeting with Punjab Chief Minister, the resolution stated that suicide bombings had no place in Islam.
