An Islamic institution in Lucknow has denounced the activities of ISIS as "anti-Islam" and issued a 'fatwa' against it, while cautioning the Indian youth against falling in the trap of the barbaric terror outfit.
Darul-uloom-Farangi Mahal issued the fatwa in response to a query by one Sajid Umar Jilani, who referred to repeated waving of ISIS flags by some people in Kashmir and wanted to
know whether activities of ISIS are valid from the Islamic point of view and what a youth should do.
The fatwa termed activities of ISIS as being against Islam, Maulana Khalid Rashid Farangi Mahali, Manager of the Darul-uloom-Farangi Mahal, said Wednesday.

"Islam does not permit killing of any innocent person. Allah has said in Quran Sharif that killing of any person without reason is against the humanity," he added.
Mahali said the way ISIS is committing atrocities and barbaric actions in the name of Islam, it is not permissible in Islam.
"Through our fatwa, youth are being cautioned that they should not fall in the trap of ISIS and they should not think that by associating with ISIS they will get 'jannat' (heaven) by Allah. Only those get place in 'jannat' who have trust on Allah and work for humanity," he said.
