“War is deceit,” said Muhammad, and here we go again. I explain here why Dr. Muhammad Tahir ul-Qadri’s celebrated 300-page fatwa against terrorism does not actually denounce jihad terrorism, and cannot be considered a true reformist document. What’s more, the supposedly moderate Tahir ul-Qadri and his Minhaj ul-Quran organization advocate the death penalty for blasphemy.
“‘Anti-terror’ camp aims to tackle extremist ‘misconceptions,'” by John Acres, BBC Radio Stoke, August 25, 2017:
The organisers of an “anti-terror” training camp at Keele University for 500 young British Muslims this weekend say they want to directly tackle misconceptions used to “lure” them to extremism.
The British Muslim organisation Minhaj-ul-Quran UK is behind the event, called Al-Hidayah 2017….
There’ll also be a keynote speaker, Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri (pictured), who organisers describe as an authority on Islam.
Dr Qadri will tackle head-on some of the fundamental ideas that form the ideological pathway to extremism which include the misconstrued theological ideas about jihad and the misinterpretation of the Quranic verses of the sword used by extremists to justify their violence.”
