Muzammil Siddiqi and the Fatwa Against Terrorism

Muzammil Siddiqi is chairman of the Fiqh Council of North America, an association of Islamic legal scholars that interprets Muslim religious law. On July 28, the group issued a fatwa, or religious ruling, condemning all acts of terrorism and religious extremism as fundamentally un-Islamic.

More than 100 Muslim organizations in the U.S. have endorsed the fatwa.
