According to the Sunday Times, “some of Britain’s most influential imams have condemned British Muslims fighting alongside ISIS extremists in Iraq and Syria,” and ‘they have issued a fatwa, or religious decree, describing them as ‘heretics’.”

This is the first fatwa of its kind to be issued by British Muslim scholars. The imams have opposed IS’ “poisonous ideology,” especially when it’s promoted within the UK.

This comes alongside the British Prime Minister’s announcement of plans for laws to prevent British jihadists fighting in Iraq and Syria from re-entering the UK.
