Cleric in Peshawar issues fatwa calling for 'jihad' against Pak govt

A local cleric in Peshawar has reportedly issued a fatwa, written in Urdu, against the Pakistan government and the media for dubbing jihadis as terrorists.

Peshawar, May 3 : A local cleric in Peshawar has reportedly issued a fatwa, written in Urdu, against the Pakistan government and the media for dubbing jihadis as terrorists.

Unidentified people distributed the fatwa issued by Mufti Khalid Shah, a local cleric in Sara-e-Naurang town of Lakki Marwat, declaring jihad against the government and those who "support non-Muslims against Muslims", reported the Daily Times.

Shah issued the single-page fatwa and it pasted on the walls of houses and mosques in Sara-e-Naurang town. Later, some unidentified people distributed the fatwa's pamphlets in various parts of the town.

In his fatwa, Shah reportedly urged militant organisations to wage "jihad" against the government, army, police, rangers, government employees, pro-government and western journalists, maulvis, judges, leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League, thinkers and poets "for supporting non-Muslims against Muslims in an Islamic country".

Shah's fatwa also criticises the media for calling jihadis terrorists, added the paper.
