India: Imam Says Anybody Connected To Islamic State Is Not Muslim


A prominent Islamic cleric in the Indian city of Lucknow says the so-called the Islamic State terrorist organization is “anti-Islam,” reports The Hindu.

“ISIS is an anti-Islam and anti-human outfit,” said Maulana Rashid Farangi Mahali, imam of the Aishbagh Eidgah mosque.

“People connected to ISIS cannot be called Muslims and terror-related activities are completely anti-Islam,” the imam said in response to recent terror attacks committed in Dhaka.

The cleric made the comments during a gathering on Eid ul-Fitr where he also offered prayers that called for the end to acts of terror.
