Case 04-2015: ISIS
PRONOUNCEMENT on Attack against Sufism
November 28, 2017
First, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights confirms that the group called ISIS has continued to carry out terrorist acts throughout the world, which has aggravated the previous Judgment that has been made against them for the charges of genocide, ethnic cleansing and Crimes against humanity.
Secondly, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights continues to denounce that the ISIS group is False Islam, violating the human rights of women and children but also betraying the spiritual teachings of the great Muslim prophets.
Thirdly, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights expresses again regarding the ideological and religious falsehood of ISIS group due to its recent terrorist attack against a Sufi mosque Al Rauda in Egypt, which on November 24, 2017 caused more than 300 deaths, not only detonating a bomb but also making hundreds of shots from the street.
Fourth, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights decides that this terrorist act allegedly caused by ISIS constitutes not only a crime against humanity but also an act of genocide, trying to partially or totally exterminate a religious group protected by the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
Fifth, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights expresses its solidarity with the People of Egypt and with the thousands of relatives of the victims of this genocidal terrorist attack, which constitutes the most terrible attack in the history of that country.
Sixth, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights denounces that while ISIS group considers Sufism as a heretical movement, it is actually ISIS itself that is constantly committing heresies that pervert or destroy the spiritual heritage of Islam.
Seventh, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights recalls once again that the Sufi Spiritual Community is probably the product of the mystical synthesis between Buddhism and Islam, which is why it constitutes a movement that must be fully respected and appreciated as a symbol of social peace and intercultural harmony.
Eighth, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights requests the People of Egypt not to carry out extrajudicial executions of terrorist suspects, since evil must never be combated with evil, having the duty to bring those responsible for acts of terrorism to international justice.
In the ninth place, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights criticizes the rabbinic document called “Between Jerusalem and Rome” where radical Islam is identified as a contemporary evil, ignoring that terrorist movements actually constitute totally False Islam, just as there is no kind of radical Buddhism but rather False Buddhism.
All these nine points demonstrate once again that the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights will continue to denounce the genocides carried out against Muslim brothers from all over the world, as is the case of the Rohingya People or the recent case of the Sufi Community.
Always with a spirit of reconciliation (maitri),
Master Maitreya Samyaksambuddha
President and Spiritual Judge of the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights
