Tripoli, 22 June 2015:
After Tobruk residents and imams objected to their burial in a local cemetery, the bodies of . . .[restrict]eight Islamic State (IS) terrorists were today thrown into a single grave dug outside the town.
The men had been killed in fighting at Fataiah on Friday and their bodies taken to Tobruk hospital. When the prosecutor released the corpses locals refused to wash them and bury them in shrouds, saying that they were not Muslims.
IS supporters in Libya, as elsewhere, are increasingly being called “Kharijites”, a reference to the group in the seventh century, shortly after the rise of Islam, which rebelled against the early caliphs and were deemed to have left the faith. The word Kharijities stems from the Arabic word meaning “to leave”.
Last year in a fatwa, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Abdulaziz Al-ash-Sheikh, labelled IS as Kharijite and non-Muslim. Even Al-Qaeda has agreed.
