A Muslim organisation promoting peace and integration in Ireland wants all visiting Muslim speakers to Ireland sign a declaration condemning terrorism.

The 'Anti-Extremism Declaration' was officially launched at a seminar in Trinity College Dublin, hosted by the School of Ecumenics, to discuss ways to prevent radicalisation of the Muslim community.

The Chair of the Irish Muslim Peace and Integration Council, Dr Shaykh Umar Al-Qadri, said the document requests all visiting Muslim speakers here to declare that they condemn all terrorism committed in the name of Islam.

The Chair of the Council of Sunni Imams in Cape Town, South Africa, Dr Shaykh Owaisi, was the first person to sign it today.

It is hoped the document will used by mosques, universities and governments across the world.

In a statement, the Department of Justice said the level of threat from international terrorism is kept under constant review here and Ireland does not consider itself immune from it.

Gardaí are taking all necessary precautions.
