Tripoli, 25 December 2013:
The Dar Al-Ifta, headed by the Grand Mufti, Sheikh Sadik Al-Ghariani, has said that the Sharia . . .[restrict]must be the main source of legislation in Libya and that any law issued that is contrary to it would be considered void.
In a decision, dated 22 December 2013, drawn up by the Dar Al-Ifta’s Research and Religious Studies Council, it said it was not permissible any law to be passed that was contrary to the Sharia which itself had to be placed above the constitution.
The Dar Al-Ifta also said that the wave of assassinations that had taken place in Libya were “major sins, regardless of the entities that stand behind them”.
Calls for elections to be boycotted and describing the government or anyone working for it as infidels were also condemned. However, all the killings and explosions, as well as calling people infidels was the government’s fault the decision read, for which it had to bear responsibility. [/restrict]
