Canadian Muslim Imam goes on a hunger strike, as he condemns ISIS calling them an inhumane terrorist organization
I believe more actions like this should be taken to alienate the fanatics like ISIS, it’s the only way we can progress and move forward.
A Calgary imam will start a 48-hour hunger strike Friday evening to protest the beheading of an American journalist in Iraq this week by ISIS.
Imam Syed Soharwardy, founder of Muslims Against Terrorism and the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada, says he wants to draw attention to the actions of ISIS — a group of militants fighting for an Islamic state in the Middle East whose violent activities show they are not Muslims.
"The atrocity that is being carried out by ISIS is quite horrible. It’s quite inhumane. It’s terrorism and in Canada they have successfully recruited more than 100 people to go and fight for them in Iraq and Syria," Soharwardy said.
"I want to create awareness about the nature of their work — they are using Islam, they are quoting Qur’an, they look like Muslims, they pray like Muslims but they are not Muslim. They are deviant people, and they are doing exactly everything which goes against Islam."
