Fatwa (Islamic verdict) issued 2005 in response to the London bombings

On behalf of over 500 clerics, scholars and Imams the British Muslim Forum issues the following religious decree:

Islam strictly, strongly and severely condemns the use of violence and the destruction of innocent lives. There is neither place nor justification in Islam for extremism, fanaticism or terrorism. Suicide bombings, which killed and injured innocent people in London, are haram - vehemently prohibited in Islam - and those who committed these barbaric acts in London are criminals not martyrs. We pray for the defeat of extremism and terrorism in the world. We pray for peace, security and harmony to triumph in multicultural Great Britain.[3]

Gul Mohammad, the then, secretary-general of the BMF, quoted the Koran saying: "Whoever kills a human being ... then it is as though he has killed all mankind, and whoever saves a human life it is as though he had saved all mankind.[4]
