New York, Apr.12 (ANI): A top Muslim scholar has launched a 600-page document arguing against violence in the name of Islam.

Qadri, who is based in Toronto, believes his religious order, or fatwa, banning suicide bombings and other terrorist acts, will save American lives.This is my jihad against terrorism. It will take some time but gradually it will work, and, it will bring very positive results in changing the mind of the youths, in America, in Britain, in the western world and in the Arab world too," he told the New York Daily News.

"Human beings are human beings everywhere, there is no right of killing. This is against Islam and against every religion and against the values of humanity," he added.

Pakistani-born Qadri, 59, admitted it would be slow progress achieving his aim, but sincerely thinks most Muslim youths can still be saved from the extremists' grip - and that he's the man o do it. (ANI)
