Baku, Azerbaijan, Sept.26
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
Islamic scientists from 126 countries have turned to the leader of the "Islamic State" terrorist organization Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in connection with the fact that the "caliphate" announced by him does not reflect the essence of Islam, the Turkish newspaper Sabah said Sept.26.
Outstanding scientists also said that announcement of caliphate without general consent of the Muslims do not comply with the laws of Islam, according to Islamic Sharia.
The terrorist organization calling itself the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS or ISIL) was created in 2003 in Iraq. In 2004-2006, the organization was led by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and consisted of 11 radical Islamist groups, which had close ties to the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda.
Following the start of military confrontation in Syria in 2013 between the armed opposition and the government forces, the IS penetrated the country.
