People who argue that the majority of Muslims aren't terrorists are often met by a counter-argument that, if this is the case, why don't more Islamic leaders speak out against it? Well now, a leading Muslim scholar is. And he's spreading the word to the West.
Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri, has taken his message of non-violence from Pakistan to the UK - a nation where too many young people of Pakistani origin have been involved in terrorism.
Qadri has - on British soil - issued a 600 page fatwa - condemning suicide bombing - and declaring that those who have blown themselves up are not martyrs - but have been sent to hellfire.
Qadri says too many impressionable young Muslim men have been brainwashed about the true teachings of Islam.
Qadri is the founder of Minhaj ul Qur'an International, a non-governmental organization active in some 100 countries that promotes peace, understanding and human rights.
