A political commentator says the backers and controllers of the Takfiri ISIL terrorist group are using it to spread Islamophobia.
Political analyst Hamid Golpira said in an interview with Press TV on Saturday that “the people controlling them (the ISIL) try to create a bad image of Islam.”
“They (the ISIL terrorists) are a poster child of Islamophobia and they are helping [it] in every way by doing these things that are forbidden in Islam,” Golpira said.
The journalist went on to say that killing a person who is not an “active combatant” is absolutely “forbidden” under Islamic law and is a heinous crime.
The remarks come as a recently released video purportedly showed the beheading of British hostage Alan Henning by the ISIL.
