Timing their fatwa a year to the day after the Madrid train bombings, Spanish Muslim Clerics (Islamic Commission of Spain) issued a fatwa against Osama bin Laden who now stands accused by fellow Muslims of terrorist acts, notably the train bombing in Madrid last year that killed 191 and injured 1500 persons. The Commission spoke on behalf of one million Muslims living in Spain.

Islamic Commission of Spain wrote:

  • "We declare ... that Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda organisation, responsible for the horrendous crimes against innocent people who were despicably murdered in the March 11 terrorist attack in Madrid, are outside the parameters of Islam," "
  • ""the terrorist acts of Osama bin Laden and his organization al Qa'ida ... are totally banned and must be roundly condemned as part of Islam."
  • "Inasmuch as Osama bin Laden and his organization defend terrorism as legal and try to base it on the Qur'an ... they are committing the crime of 'istihlal' and thus become apostates that should not be considered Muslims or treated as such."

  • The fact that this act is unprecedented, speaks for itself.
