Grand Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Taskhiri, Chairman of the Supreme Council at the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought, issued a message addressing the international proximity conference on â€œIslam and Respecting the Blood of the Innocent Peopleâ€ and rejected excommunication saying that the issue blocks the way for rational dialogue and behavior.
Ayatollah Taskhiri in his message stressed,â€ Excommunication blocks rational behavior during dialogues; therefore, there will be no space for fraternity and unity.â€ Adding,â€ That is when the sides move towards rejection, elimination or violation of each otherâ€™s rights, even the right to live.â€
Sheikh Ahmad Alzain, top Lebanese cleric, in this conference said,â€ What should we name a person who carrying weapons, shouting â€œGod is the Greatestâ€, shoots other people and kills other Muslims?â€
Lebanese scholar reiterated,â€ Here we stress that the right of people to live, is a sacred right and violation of this right is never acceptable.â€
Omar al Barzanji, Iraqi Ambassador to Lebanon, demanded the formation of a world board of dialogue to form a real move for dialogue between Muslim scholars and the excommunicators.â€
â€œEssam Ghandoorâ€ another top cleric attending the conference urged Muslim leaders to maintain resistance and unity against the excommunicators.
Three-day international conference on â€œIslam and Respecting the Blood of the Innocent Peopleâ€ kicked off in the Lebanese capital of Beirut on November 10th.
