Seen the news conference on this, the Imams would like anyone knowing anything about anyone having extemist views and ideas to be immediately reported
to the police. About time the leaders are actually leading their people. Now if only all the Imams would do this, something good might happen.
Anyone know if any American Imams have done this?
More than 120 Islamic religious leaders from across Canada issued a declaration Thursday denouncing acts of terrorism as a "perversion" of their
faith and challenged Muslims to confront extremism.
"Anyone who claims to be a Muslim and participates in any way in the taking of innocent life is betraying the very spirit and letter of Islam," said
the statement, which was read aloud by Imam Ahmad Kutty of the Islamic Institute of Toronto at the downtown Masjid mosque.
