Summary: 

This is the work of Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri, which in itself makes it suspect. Tahir ul-Qadri is widely hailed as a “moderate” because of his massive , but that jaw-droppingly windy document is . In fact, Tahir ul-Qadri is . And here he purports to show how the Qur’an, properly understood, promotes peace. This only leads to the inevitable question: if this is so, why do so many Muslims worldwide misunderstand the Qur’an’s peaceful message, and why do they all misunderstand it in the same way? In reality, as I show in my  and in The Complete Infidel’s Guide to the Koran (which you can order ), mainstream and authoritative Islamic commentators understand the Qur’an to be teaching that is the Muslims’ responsibility to pursue warfare against and the subjugation of unbelievers. Here again, how is it that these men, who dedicated their lives to understanding the Qur’an properly, instead misunderstand it so drastically? I’m sure Tahir-ul-Qadri will have no answer to that.
