Coventry, England (CNN) - Tired of Islamic terror camps grabbing headlines, a Pakistani Muslim cleric is fighting back by holding his own "anti-terror camp."

Islamic cleric Shaykh Muhammad Tahir ul-Qadri is the man behind "Al-Hidayah," an Islamic retreat at the University of Warwick, in the UK.

‘Al-Hidayah 2010’ which attracted around 1500 young Muslim men and women from across the UK, Europe and North America, was held at the University of Warwick on 7th, 8th and 9th of August , 2010 with the aim to de-radicalise and spiritualise the Muslim youth.

COVENTRY, England (Reuters) - Like any rousing Islamic preacher, Muhammed Tahir ul-Qadri's voice rises to a shout and his index finger jabs as he hammers home a point.

But rather than angry calls for jihad (holy war) or a vitriolic denunciation of the West and its aggressions against Islam, Qadri's message, equally forcefully delivered, is about moderation, peace, inclusion and understanding.

As stated by Shaykh ul Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri the motto of Minhaj-ul-Quran is ‘to spread the love’ love for Allah (S.W.T) Love for the Prophet (P.B.U.H), Love for Ahlul bait, Love for Sahaba, Love for Pious people, Love for the whole humanity, even Love for animals and plants’, therefore the Minhaj Dawah Project felt it was a necessity to spread this love over aspects of society where cracks had formed, hope was lost and good morals had been laid to rest.
