Islamic council announces fatwa

Thank you to the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada for announcing its fatwa against honour killings.

The council issues a statement this past weekend denouncing such killings.

“There is no justificaiton for honour killings, domestic violence and misogyny in Islam,” the statement said.

I had hoped organizations and individuals would speak out against honour killings after the Shafia trial.

I still can’t believe that parents can murder their children. To say that it is honour is the furthest from the truth.

A fatwa is basically a religious ruling based on knowledge and wisdom.

What do you think of the council stepping forward and issuing this fatwa?
