Algiers — Amid reports that the Islamic State (ISIS) intends to rewrite and edit the Holy Qur’an, academics, scholars and religious leaders are voicing the need to confront the group on its ideological home turf.

According to Iraqi channel Afek, “The Islamic State organisation decided to rewrite the Qur’an, and delete some verses.”

Turkish daily Aydinlik also reported that ISIS had announced its intention to rearrange verses of the Qur’an.

The extremist group claims that the verses they want to delete were put in by “forgers”.

Amid calls for Islamic Reform, one would not have expected the same to have been proposed so swiftly by BadDaddy’s Islamic Hate.

The fate of the “B” guy himself is a mystery this week following reports of injury beneath aerial raids.  Posted about 20 hours ago:

(CNN) — He’s enemy No. 1 in the fight against ISIS. But after waves of airstrikes by both Iraq and U.S.-led coalition forces, questions abound over whether the terror group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was hit.

Iraq’s minister of defense, Khaled al-Obeidi, said on Facebook that al-Baghdadi was wounded in airstrikes in Mosul on Friday night and that his deputy, Musallam al-Turkmani, was killed.

But Iraq’s Interior Ministry said the Iraqi air force wounded al-Baghdadi in an airstrike Saturday not in Mosul, but in the Iraqi town of al-Qaim — about 400 kilometers (250 miles) away.
