Muslim scholars condemn Russian bombings.

At times Muslims are accused of not condemning terroristic activity. Usually they do but the condemnations do not seem to get all that much publicity.


Muslim Scholars Condemn Bombings

Muslim scholars from a dozen countries on Thursday condemned suicide bombings by Islamist rebels in Moscow and Dagestan as "criminal terrorist attacks" that violated their faith.

The 24 scholars, including five prominent muftis from Russia, also spoke out against recent violence in Iraq and expressed their condolences to victims and their families.

The Russian bombings killed at least 50 people and injured another 100 in less than three days, stirring fears of a major bombing campaign by Islamist insurgents.

"Islam absolutely upholds the sanctity of human life and no grievances, even when legitimate, can ever be used to justify or legitimate such murderous and evil acts," said a statement by the scholars issued in Dubai.
