Leeds Imam claims ISIS is ‘failing’
Haqiqah has been set up by Imams to “reclaim the digital space” from ISIS, which is also known as Daesh.
He said: “The reality is that Daesh continues to put out a huge amount of propaganda and lies, despite its promises being exposed as falsehoods, which is why a continued effort to reclaim the digital space from terrorists is so important.
“In its desperation at its own failings, it has told Syrians that they are committing a “major sin” in Islam if they seek protection in the West.
“According to Daesh, this makes thousands refugees apostates. This is a wicked and inhumane lie.”
Shaukat Warraich, the editor-in-chief of Haqiqah added: “Daesh is failing on multiple fronts, it is becoming increasingly desperate.
“The mass exodus of refugees has exposed their false claim of having established a ‘Caliphate’ for Muslims in the region.”
The British Imams said they have been incensed by images of civilians of all ages dying as they “flee unspeakable horrors”.
