IS is 'anti-Islam', says Lucknow imam

 A prominent city-based Islamic cleric on Thursday dubbed IS “anti-Islam” and said those connected to it cannot be called Muslims.

The comments came in the backdrop of terror strikes by radical groups in Bangladesh.
Imam of the Aishbagh Eidgah Maulana Rashid Farangi Mahali said some ‘communal’ leaders were ‘spreading venom’ against Muslims and demanded that stern action be taken against them. Decrying the militant attacks in Dhaka and Medina, he asserted, “IS is an anti-Islam and anti-human outfit. People connected to the IS cannot be called Muslims and terror-related activities are completely anti-Islam.”

Three people were killed on Thursday by radical Islamists in a terror strike at the biggest Edin gathering in Bangladesh’s Sholakia, nearly a week after the deadly attack on a Dhaka cafe that left 22 people dead.

Multiple attacks were carried out in Saudi Arabia, including one in Medina, on Monday.
