New Delhi, Feb 24 (ANI): Darul Uloom and several other Muslim organisations are likely to adopt a declaration on Monday, denouncing terrorism and declaring it “un-Islamic”.

The declaration is expected to be finalised and adopted at an anti-terrorism conference in Deoband in Uttar Pradesh, which would be attended, by clerics, scholars and religious leaders from across the country.

“Representatives from about 6,000 madrasas from across the country, Muslim leaders and clerics from several sects besides foreign delegates will attend the conference,” Ashraf Usmani, a member of the media team of the seminary, said.

The conference will ask the Muslim community to stay away from acts of terrorism and organisations that encourage violence in the name of religion, he said, adding: “we condemn terrorism and killing of innocent people.”

“Terrorism has no place in a civil society,” Maulana Abdul Hameed Nomani, Islamic scholar and spokesman of Jamiat-e-Ulema-e-Hind, said.

All acts of terrorism and killing of innocent people of any religion are strictly prohibited, he said.

“We have received invitation and our representatives will participate in the anti-terrorism conference,” Maulana Kalbe Jawwad, a prominent Shia cleric and General Secretary of Majlis-e-Ulema-e-Hind, said. (ANI)
