Strategy needed to eliminate terror: Qadri


LAHORE – Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has said that terrorism has adversely impacted the economies of the developing and the developed countries. Terrorists have no religion. The phenomenon of terrorism has not appeared suddenly out of nowhere.
Rather it has evolved through the phases of radicalism and extremism and terrorists are used as fodder for the cannons of the masterminds of this evil. He said that there are five phases through which terrorism passes. Radical and conservative attitudes are ideological in nature and give birth to militancy and terrorism.
According press statement issued by the Directorate of Media, Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri expressed these views while addressing the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Geneva. He is the only Islamic scholar from across the world who has been invited to speak at the World Economic Forum.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that terrorism has no religion and bracketing this anti-human practice with such peaceful religion as Islam is not correct. He further added that the handful of extremists who are the present-day custodian of the Kharjitte thought have nothing to do with Islam.”
