IS, Al Qaeda have no links to Islam: imam of Kaaba

Imam-e-Kaaba Dr Sheikh Saleh Bin Abdullah Bin Humaid said that the terrorist organizations like Daesh and Al-Qaeda had no link or concern with Islam as Islam is the religion of peace.

In an interview to a private news channel, The imam said that Muslim countries are facing difficulties due to mutual differences and intolerance, and refuted the perception that the Islamic Military Alliance was against any country.

He said sectarianism is like a curse and could be diminished by resolving mutual differences and following Kalma-e-Haq.

According to Radio Pakistan, the imam said that only the state was responsible for declaring jihad, not an organisation or a group of people, adding that the Holy Quran said that killing a single person without any reason is like killing the whole of humanity.

He said Islamic Military Alliance is not against any country.

Earlier this year in January, it was confirmed that former army chief General (retd) Raheel Sharif was made the chief of the 39-nation Islamic military coalition formed to combat terrorism.
