ISLAMABAD, Oct. 11 (Xinhua) --A group of Pakistani religious scholars Thursday declared as un-Islamic Taliban's attack on children's rights activist Malala Yousafzai.
A total of 50 Sunni scholars issued a "fatwa" or religious decree in the eastern city of Lahore which said that the Taliban's interpretation of Islam was incorrect and was deviant from the actual interpretation of the Islamic Shariah.
The edict said that Taliban were misguided and their mindset was driven by ignorance.
The Islamic ruling also said the United States is the enemy of Islam and Pakistan, and any kind of cooperation with the U.S. is not in compliance with the Shariah.
In response to Taliban's interpretation of killing females for the greater good of the religion, the scholars said that Islam discourages killing of the females.
The assassination attempt on the life of the young National Peace Award winner has prompted widespread condemnation from the government, political parties and civil society groups, terming it a bid to silent voice for peace and education.
Pakistani Taliban had claimed responsibility for the attack and said Malala had been involved in what they called anti-Islam and anti-Taliban campaign.
