Darul-Uloom Deoband to declare terrorism ‘un-Islamic’

Muslim religious scholars from all over India are meeting at a leading Islamic school to discuss issues related to terrorism.

The meeting is being held at the Darul-Uloom Deoband, a powerful Islamic school more than 150 years old.

Scholars from 6,000 religious schools – known as madrassas – are attending.

The Deoband school promotes a brand of Islam which some say was an inspiration to Afghanistan’s Taleban, although the school denies this.

Reports say that the meeting is expected to denounce terrorism and declare acts of terrorism as “un-Islamic”.

One of the scholars participating in the meeting told a television channel that it also aimed to shape popular perceptions.
