A fatwa, or religious ruling, condemning the self-titled Islamic State group as “un-Islamic” has been signed by the leaders of all the main mosques in India, which has the world’s third-largest Muslim population.

More than a thousand Muslim clerics will explain the fatwa to their followers after Friday prayers. India’s 172 million Muslims have mainly opposed the extremism embodied by IS and al Qaeda.
