Sufi scholar Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri Wednesday said that peace is the source and crux of Islam, and that terrorism has no place in the religion.
Qadri, the Pakistan-based founder of Minhaj-ul-Quran, was delivering a lecture at the India Islamic Centre to mark the launch of his book, 'Fatwa on terrorism and suicide bombings'.
The book is the English translation of a 600-page fatwa, in Urdu, issued in March 2010. A statement released at the venue described it as, "one of the most extensive Islamic anti-terrorism rulings, an absolute condemnation of terrorism without any excuses or pretexts...."
The Minaj-ul-Quran International is a Lahore-headquartered NGO founded in 1981. According to the organisation's website, its aims include, "reviving the true values and principles of Islam".
