The motion which was adopted without debate also called on the fatwa council to investigate in full the activities of carried out by the organisation.
The division in its motion said the SIS' activities were dangerous as they could cause confusion among the Muslims.
"We are aware that their approach can easily be accepted by the Muslims and this is dangerous as it can twist their aqidah, especially the young and those who went through the secular education," it said.
The motion also urged the Fatwa Council to introduce special programmes to rehabilitate members of the organisation so that they could come back to the right religous track.
