Imam of Grand Mosque in Mecca condemns pilot killing.

Amman, Feb. 4 (Petra) -- The Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Sheikh Abdul Rahman Al Sudais condemned the killing of Jordanian pilot Moath Al Kasasbeh.

Sheikh Sudais said that Islam disavowed such 'barbaric' acts and Islam is a religion of tolerance and mercy.

"These acts that happen under the name of Islam linked Islam with terrorism in the minds of those who do not know Islam," tweeted Sheikh Sudais on his account last night.

The fiercest enemy of Islam is an ignorant Muslim who banks on his ignorance to distort the true image of Islam, added Sheikh Sudais.
