ISLAMABAD(PANinfo-icon): Hundreds of religious scholars on Thursday denounced suicide assaults as a "sinister conspiracy" to defame Islam, an organiser said on Thursday.

In a declaration issued at the end of a three-day international conference on the life and teachings of Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH) in the eastern city of Lahore, 250 clerics from 18 countries declared suicide attacks un-Islamic.

"Such attacks are being carried out under a plan to destroy state infrastructure and denigrate Islam, a religion of peace and harmony," they said in a joint statement, which also called for updating religious schools' syllabus.

Scholars from Afghanistaninfo-icon, Pakistaninfo-icon, Nepal, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Jordon, Kuwait, Egypt, Britain, India, Bangladesh, South Africa and other countries took part in the event, said Maulana Ali Ahmad, a leader of the Sautul Islam group which arranged the conference.

While emphasising the protection of followers of other faiths, Islam does not allow jihadinfo-icon in any Muslim country, one participant told Pajhwok Afghan News. "Terrorists carry out suicide assaults on the basis of ill intentions," said a participant, Mufti Mohiuddin.

He also suggested reforms in the syllabi of religious institutions to prevent their "misuse by terrorists" and improve their overall educationinfo-icon standards.

Another participant, Mohammad Anwar Ali Husseini urged unity among religious forces to defeat "terrorists".
