Four days after the declaration (fatwa) of Deoband against terrorism , a regional wing of Ahle Hadees school of Islamic thought, Subai Jamiat Ahle Hadees launched a virtual jihad against terrorism. The president of the organization Jamiat Ahle Hadees (Maharashtra) said "Islam is the very anti-thesis of terrorism. The religion came to this world to finish `fasad fil arz' (terror on the earth). The Quran very clearly says that killing of an innocent is akin to killing entire humanity and to save an innocent's life is like saving mankind,''(11 ).
