Malaysian scholars term ongoing war in Afghanistan 'un-Islamic'


KABUL: Afghanistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) says that Malaysia Global Islamic Unity Forum (MGIUF) has called the ongoing war in Afghanistan un-Islamic.

The ministry in a statement on Sunday said that MGIUF, which is a reputable organization in the Islamic world, condemns the Afghan war and terms it as a violation of Sharia.

The source said that the forum expressed the views in a statement to the Afghan embassy in Kuala Lumpur.

This comes as the Afghan Ulema and Association of Islamic Scholars of Bangladesh had earlier called the ongoing Afghan conflict ‘un-Islamic’ and asked warring sides to resolve the crisis in a peaceful way.
