I had the honour this evening of attending Jubilee Road Mosque, High Wycombe, to speak at a meeting discussing a fatwa against terrorism, led by its author. The ruling by Dr Gilani predates, I understand, that given by Dr Tahir ul-Qadri, which received more publicity.
While the proceedings were conducted mostly in Arabic and Urdu, the atmosphere conveyed the sentiment: that we should live in peace and brotherly love. This was the thrust of my speech.
I was treated with great openness and generosity of spirit. I regret only that I cannot convey here the warmth of the meeting and the sincerity of those in attendance.
I’ll post a link to the video once I have it.
