Controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has declared that he will no longer take part in negotiations with bandits as a consequence of their new “terrorist” tag.
Responding once more to the court’s judgment, Gumi revealed in a video interview on TVC News on Monday the reasons behind his latest decision not to negotiate with bandits anymore.
Gumi said, “We do not want to push the bandits beyond what they are presently doing because it can get worse. Why are you rushing to declare them terrorists when they are willing to negotiate?”
Gumi further stated, “The remaining door of negotiating with them is the clerics, but the door is now closed. I will not contact them again because that would mean, one is aiding terrorists.
