A group of Calgary imams is marking the first line of defense at the foot of the Rocky Mountains against the recruitment of Canadians as fighters by the jihadi group ISIS.Several imams issued a religious edict against ISIS last month, denouncing its threats against Canada and its online recruitment after dozens of Canadians – mostly from Calgary – traveled to Syria to join their cause.In the fatwa, the imams urge young Muslims to shun the sway of ISIS, which they accuse of having violated Islamic tenets "in the most horrific and inhumane way". Khan is one of 37 imams and religious scholars from across Canada, plus one from Texas, who endorsed the fatwa.Gathered at the mosque, Tariq, Khan and others say more resources are needed to address a growing religious education gap facing Muslims of soaring numbers in Calgary.The city's Muslim population has increased fourfold in the past two decades to 120,000 .
