Shaykh-ul-Islam Prof.Dr. Muhammad Tahir ul-Qadri
Canadian-known Muslim Scholar, Shaykh-ul-Islam Prof.Dr. Muhammad Tahir ul-Qadri has published a 600 page document contains instructions against violence in the name of Islam. According to Muhammad Tahir ul-Qadri, none of the religious order, or fatwa, which suggested suicide bombings and other terrorist actions to fight for religion. "This is my jihad against terrorism," he told the Daily News recently.

According to Muhammad Tahir ul-Qadri, Islam is a religion that honors the life. "Human beings are human beings everywhere, there is no right of killing. This is against Islam and against every religion and against the values of humanity." he said.

Prof.Dr. Muhammad Tahir ul-Qadri who was born in Pakistan 59 years ago, has declared that the document will soon be distributed. "It will take some time but gradually it will work," he added.

He believes the documents that has been gathered will bring very positive results in changing the minds of Islamic youth. However, he acknowledged that there are many youths - hundreds, at least - so "radicalized" that there is nothing to convince them to change their ways. "They are radicalized and they have been brainwashed too - so now there's no place in their mind, no space for any evidence, any argument or any reason," he said.

Qadri founded the Islamic organization Minhaj-ul-Quran in Pakistan in 1990 and it is now active in over 100 countries, including the U.S. He has been teaching and lecturing against violence for more than 15 years and claims to be the only preacher in Pakistan openly to support the war on terror after 9/11.

He did lecture which was broadcast around the world every day for one hour in the Islamic television based in Dubai, QTV. He also has written more than 1000 books and has more than 6000 sermons online.

"I wouldn't say, for example, this fatwa will change the mind of Bin Laden," Qadri added. "But I would say the youth who are being radicalized and in future have the potential to be used for suicide bombings, this fatwa will affect on those areas. It will prevent them."

Although he has incurred the wrath of Al Qaeda for speaking out and received countless death threats over the past decade, Qadri refuses to live in fear.

"The one who lives in fear, he would never find courage to issue this kind of fatwa," he added.
