Hyderabad, July 9 (ANI): Accusing the Islamic State of hurting the ideologies of Islam, All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslim (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi has asked the Muslim youth to live for Islam and not to die for it. "Live for Islam.don't die for it. You (terrorists) caused so much pain to the Muslim community that we can't even express it in words," he said. Owaisi said while speaking about the recent suicide bombing which took place outside a mosque near the Saudi city of Medina also issued a note of caution for the jihadis. "If you really want to do jihad, don't take up arms. Feed the poor, work for their development, fund marriages of their daughters - this is real jihad," Owaisi said. "The real jihad will be if we fight against the BJP and the Sangh," he added. Terming the ISIS militants as 'dogs of hell', Owaisi accused them of causing pain to the Muslims. "The attack by the Islamic State near Prophet's mosque was the work of enemies of Islam. The Islamic State is demeaning Islam and its militants are dogs of hell. Your (Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi) body will be cut into pieces. If you want to do it in India. It's not always necessary to take up weapons.your biggest weapon is your hand," he added. Earlier on July 4, a suicide bomber named Naer Muslim Hamad killed as many as four security officers near a mosque in the sacred city of Medina. The attacks happened at the end of the holy month of Ramadan. During this year's Ramadan, there have been multiple attacks carried out by the IS sympathisers across the world. (ANI)
