Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri started his passionate and powerful speech by declaring that Islam stands for peace, love, compassion, human dignity and mercy. He said "Islam does not stand for any kind of violence, militancy, terrorism, and brutality."
He said "I want to communicate this message of Islam to the whole mankind. People have misled the youth by wrong perceptions and interpretations of Islam."
Speaking about "Jihad: Perception and reality", Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri said that the perception that Jihad is a holy war is completely wrong and younger generation has been misled on this count. It is due to various reasons. Jihad is seen as an act of violence which is against the concept of jihad.
Finally he asked the audience to support a declaration against terrorism and to raise their hands and stand up against the suicide bombing and terrorism. The whole crowd stood up and agreed with Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri.
