Indian Muslims denounce terrorism

Deoband issues declaration against terrorism as anti-Islamic.

    Some of the most influential Muslim scholars in India have passed a resolution condemning all forms of violence in the name of Islam.

    The Deoband is an influential Islamic school inspiring tens of thousands of religious study centres across the world, which some say has even inspired the Taliban's ideology in Afghanistan.

    Prerna Suri reports on the weight of the school's declaration.
