    Doha • Noted Islamic scholar, Dr Yusuf Al Qaradawi, has called on Al Qaeda's North African wing to ‘repent’ the bombings they carried out in Algeria recently, review their ideology and shun violence, local Arabic media reported yesterday.

    “You should follow in the footsteps of the Islamic (extremist) group in Egypt which has announced that they are shunning violence,” the cleric urged Al Qaeda leadership in Islamic Maghrebi (North Africa). "Regret your actions and join the Islamic mainstream," he added.

    In a letter addressed to the Algerian President, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, Al Qaradawi said he was deeply saddened by the twin bomb attacks in Algeria ( in Dellys and Batna towns) which have claimed 60 innocent lives and left more than 200 injured.

    The cleric was in Algeria recently and fell ill. He was admitted to a military hospital and Bouteflika called on him. Al Qaradawi thanked him for the gesture.
