Muslims urged to stand up against terrorism PDF Print E-mail
LONDON, Oct 25 (APP)-A leading Islamic authority Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has condemned terrorism and suicide bombings and urged the Muslims to stand up against the twin menace.The founder of the Pakistan-based Minhaj-ul-Quran spoke at the Global Peace and Unity Conference in East London last night and said Islam stands for peace, love, compassion, human dignity and mercy. He said “Islam does not stand for any kind of violence, militancy, terrorism, brutality.”Earlier, in March this year, he launched successful anti-terrorism fatwa and organised anti-terror summer camp in August.


Speaking before a large audience, Dr.Qadiri said: “This is Islam which came at a time when the dignity of mankind was lost, there was brutality, violence and people were cutting their necks. At that time there was racial, religious and tribal discrimination and there was no respect for slaves. At that time Islam stood up for the poor and oppressed people, orphans, and women and gave respect and dignity to the mankind irrespective of their race, religion and culture. This is Islam which came for promoting global peace, mercy and dignity.”
He said people have misled the youth by wrong perceptions of Islam.Explaining  the perception and reality of Jihad, the scholar said the perception that jihad is a holy-war is completely wrong and younger generation has been misled. It is due to various reasons. Jihad is seen as an act of violence which is against the concept of jihad.
Dr Qadri clarified that “the literal meaning of jihad is exertion, struggling, striving, and putting extreme efforts according to extreme abilities, to counter evil, to achieve good for sake of Allah.”
He further mentioned that there is no verse which advocates killing, brutality and terrorism. “There are only four verses available in the Quran which mention lawful defensive warfare and it has been mentioned in the context of jihad. Every country has the right for self-defence according to the international law and the United Nations; these verses are same for self-defence only.”
He also made it clear that “it is solely the prerogative of a state authority to declare jihad and only as a last resort when diplomacy and all other efforts to make peace have failed.”
The British Conservative party chair Baroness Sayeeda Warsi was also to address the conference on tackling extremism but according to the media reports was told by Prime Minister David Cameron not to appear at the event.
Argument over the most effective strategy to challenge extremism also led to a schism between the Liberal Democrats and Conservatives in the coalition government. While Cameron prohibited Tories from attending the event at the Excel Centre in Docklands, the deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg, firmly opposed a boycott by politicians, agreeing with Warsi that extremists should be publicly confronted.
As a result, a compromise agreement led Andrew Stunell, the Liberal Democrat communities minister, to deliver an aggressive speech against those who espouse fundamentalism. He made it clear that the coalition government will not tolerate extremism, hatred and intolerance in any form.
Clegg in his message to the conference reiterated the need to tackle extremism head-on. The conference was organised by Britain’s  popular Muslim television station, the Islam Channel.
