A cleric called for a fatwa Tuesday against embattled Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, saying fighting his citizens “is not heroism.”
Sheik Yusuf Qaradawi, head of the International Union for Muslim Scholars, issued a fatwa on live television, urging the Libyan army to kill Gadhafi, the Los Angeles Times reported.
“It is not heroism to fight your people and to hit them with missiles,” Qaradawi said on al-Jazeera.
