Members of Sunni Ittehad Council in a meeting – File Photo

LAHORE: At least 50 Islamic scholars belonging to Sunni Ittehad Council issued a fatwa (ruling) in which they condemned terrorism in the country, DawnNews reported.

They also condemned target killings in Karachi and Balochistan, along with sectarianism and suicide attacks.

The fatwa issued declared that suicide attacks are forbidden in Islam, and that those involved in the killing of innocent people are condemned to hell.

According to the fatwa, suicides attacks and related violence smears the name of Islam and weakens Pakistan.

The fatwa also said that the United States is the enemy of Pakistan and the Islamic world. Further stating that any alliance with the US is un-Islamic and illegal.
