New Delhi: All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslim (AIMIM) Chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday shared his thoughts on Islam, the Islamic State (IS or ISIS) and the radical extremism the group had established in the hearts of many Muslim youth.
Urging the Muslim youths to live for Islam instead of dying for it, Owaisi said that the Islamic State did not represent Islam and were in fact anti-Islamic forces.
"If you really want to do jihad, don't take up arms. Feed the poor, work for their development, fund marriages of their daughters – this is real jihad," said the AIMIM chief on the recent suicide bombing which took place outside a mosque near the Saudi city of Medina.
"Attack by the Islamic state near Prophet's mosque was the handiwork of enemies of Islam. The Islamic State is demonising Islam and its militants are dogs of hell," said Owaisi.
