“The Islamic Shari’ah has nothing to do with the acts of those few deviated people who follow its teachings but change them from their proper contexts. They claim to punish people because of injustices done by their rulers. Reality bears witness that the victims of those crimes are the peaceful citizens such as those who were killed in London bombings recently while going to their work in the morning or going to their schools, universities, etc. The same are those victims killed in the bombings that hit the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh. Those innocent victims are peaceful Egyptians and tourists…”
Statement issued by the International Association of Muslim Scholars, headed by Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, outlining Islam’s stance on the bombings in London and Sharm El-Sheikh.
