Riyadh, 10 Ramadan,1437 AH, 15 June,2016 , SPA -- The General Secretariat of the Council of Senior Scholars confirmed that Islam criminalizes terrorism and considers it as a corruption in the land, which ultimately serves only the people of racist speeches that spread hatred and push for more aversion that does not serve to build a world of order and a recognition of rights.
It explained in a statement issued today that the condemnation of terrorism is derived from the texts of the Holy Quran and Prophetic Sunnah that underline all the meanings of the protection of civilians, and Islam glorifies the sanctity of human blood, and makes killing one person as killing all.
The General Secretariat said that the world today is fighting a battle against terrorism and terrorists, and the Muslim peoples are living under the yoke of terrorism in its worst form, as is happening in Syria and people there are daily hit by bombs and explosive barrels without a serious stand from the world and its institutions to stop this barbaric brutal attack, stressing that terrorism is an evil and the world must cooperate to eradicate it and prevent its causes and motives.
The General Secretariat of the Council of Senior Scholars said that the world today is facing a real opportunity for the establishment of justice, fair rules and respect for people and their privacy, including encouraging the world for prevailing of peace and harmony that all people everywhere crave for, stressing that it must criminalize racist rhetoric, which is the other outcast that must be fought as it does not serve the global peace and security.
