ISIS a threat to humanity, says Shia body

Bengaluru: A prominent body of Shias on Thursday said the community is prepared to fight against ISIS, which is a threat to humanity, and questioned the double standard of countries like the United States and Saudi Arabia’s in fight against terrorism.

“Islam has nothing to do with terrorism. As many as 40 countries are funding to ISIS all over the world. On the one side, the countries are funding the ISIS, while on the other side, they are saying that international law is against terrorism,” Anjuman-E-Imamia president Syed Zamin Raza told a press conference here.

Raza also asserted that Islam has nothing to do with terrorism and talked about their awareness programmes to curb ISIS activities in the countries.

“We are encouraging awareness programmes in both the communities – Shia and Sunni – to fight against ISIS. ISIS is a threat to humanity and it cannot be defeated unless all work together with the help of technology at people’s disposal,” Raza said.

Raza also accused the US and some sections of Wahabi cult in Saudi Arabia of supporting global terrorism.

“There is a lot of difference between Indian Muslims and Saudi Muslims. It is some section of Wahabi cult in Saudi, who are spreading terrorism,” he added.(ANI)
