Islamic terrorism 'leads to hellfire'

In what may be a significant act for many Muslims in this country, a leading Islamic scholar will issue a religious decree, or fatwa, in which he argues that suicide bombings and violent attacks in the name of Islam are, far from being justified, acts that put the perpetrators beyond the faith and are to be condemned. The fatwa, running to more than 600 pages comes from Dr Muhammad Tahir-al-Qadri, founder of a Sufi Muslim group based in Pakistan called Minhaj ul Quran which says that it is committed to education of young Muslims in the promotion of peace. Dr Qadri describes the document he is publishing today.
