The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka (MCSL) has called upon the leader of the terror group Islamic State (IS) – Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to put an immediate stop to the massacre of innocent humans in the name of Islam.
MCSL Vice President Hilmy Ahamed releasing a statement has condemned the continued executions of innocent civilians, journalists and aid workers by the IS of which the most recent victim is American journalist Steven Sotloff.
Describing these executions as ‘cheap and abusive students’ carried out by the brutal terrorists to intimidate the whole world, Ahamed has pointed out that these actions have no place in Islam or in the teaching of Prophet Muhammad.
“Islam forbids torture, harassment and murder of even combatants,” he has written, to further emphasize his arguments.
He has gone on to state that these actions of the IS are crimes that should be condemned by all nations and have called upon the international community including all Islamic countries to act decisively against the IS who have embarked on a killing spree that Islam forbids.
“We also call upon all Muslims around the word to engage in prayers for the victims,” the statement further read.
