Sir Iqbal Sacranie enjoys the favor of Queen and Parliament, and he is ready to go after the London bombers with both rhetorical barrels blazing. From IslamOnline, with thanks to The One Who Must Not Be Named:
CAIRO, July 10, 2005 (IslamOnline.net) — Britain’s top Muslim scholars are drafting a fatwa stripping those behind the grisly London blasts, if proved Muslims, from the right to call themselves Muslims, a leading British newspaper said Sunday, July 10.
Signed by dozens of prominent Muslim bodies, mosques, Islamic scholars and community groups, the religious edict will brand the attacks as a breach of the most basic tenets of Islam, reported The Independent.
“If these bombers are found to be Muslims, we will make it clear we utterly dissociate ourselves from them – even if they claim to be Muslims or are acting under the mantle of the Islamic faith. We reject that utterly,” said the official spokesman of the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB).
A sign of the deep divisions within the Islamic community is that reaction within secret passworded Muslims-only websites was not uniformly favorable. These come from a discussion under the title UMMAH NEWS on one Islamic forum:
Even if one agrees that these bombings are haram, that doesn’t make the alleged perpatrators unbelievers. The MCB is such a tawagheet [apostate rulers]-butt kissing organization. They should really fear with whom they will be raised up with on the day of judgement.
Walaa [affection, or agreement] to the extreme…GOD DAMN EXTREMISTS!
Ajeeb – How can a Kaffir [unbeliever] declare a muslim a kaffir?
just remember this when your kafir brothers turn on you and your familes. when they drag your sisters outa the house by their hair and pour petrol on your parents just remember how those who u call kafir and those who u threw out of your cushy society warned u about it and reminded you of what Allah(swt) tells you.
“Those behind this atrocity aren’t just enemies of humanity but enemies of Islam and Muslims,” said Sacranie. Look at how the Queen’s favorite pet “Muslim” rushes to the defense of his masters. Just like a little yelper dog…”We’re not talking about Muslims here. We’re talking about a bunch of nutters,” said Qureshi. Another tawagheet-butt kissing “Muslim” who is little more then another barking dog. The[y] figure if they bark enough their masters will feed them.”
