Who are the promoters of Tahir ul Qadri? A professional priest and a habitual liar with claims to have "visions" of the Prophet in his dreams, he has built a massive following of devotees and has established a world wide network of his Evangelical Islam. His organization Minhaj ul Quran International also known as MQI has lot of supporters including newly Christian converts to Islam. Now a Canadian citizen, Tahir ul Qadri has vaulting political ambitions. In December of 2012 he returned to Pakistan, mustered an uprising, emerging with his followers " to create another Tahrir Square." On January 14, 2013, he organized a Long March in Islamabad, a stand off that shook Islamabad and the Government of Pakistan whom he claimed to have taken as hostage. After 5 days, the stand off was negotiated privately. A darling of the Christian Church, Tahir ul Qadri is being proclaimed as a notable Islamic Religious Scholar and a candidate for Nobel Peace Prize. He is best known for his 2010 Anti-Terrorism Fatwa, his DECLARATION OF LONDON. It is indeed great to see that he condemns terrorism and religious extremism, and it is indeed great to see the emergence of non-violence, 'interfaith' dialogue and religious tolerance. So far so good but he is a lot more. Imperialist powers have long awaited the arrival of a Messiah of Islam who will project Islam as a mantra of superstitious rituals and rites, formally establishing the institution of priesthood in Islam. Imperialist powers have long felt a need for a Church of Islam which, like Christianity, has a Pope whose edict is perceived by the Muslims as word of God. With a priestly ulterior motives, he is set on a mission to subvert the emergence of political Islam, promoting a new cult of Sufi Islam. He has thousands of followers, all coming from the newly rich middle class of Saudi-gulf returned Pakistanis. But who is behind all of this?
