Qadri suspected working for US and Israeli Interests

Many people complain that Taher Ul Qadri may be working for the United States and Israel, an allegation which is denied by him.

It is a fact that Dr. Qadri never criticized United States for their high handedness in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and other countries. The whole world knows what happened on 9/11 and afterwords but Taher Ul Qadri never gets tired of singing US praise in all their actions, including their drone attacks on innocent civilians in many parts of the world.

Dr. Qadri sounds extremely apologetic in media interviews and gives the impression that only Muslims are behind terrorism in the world and that he is trying to stop Muslim youth from terrorism. Thus, many people in Islamic countries, particularly in Pakistan and Indian Sub continent are convinced that he is promoting US and Israeli interests in Muslim countries.

Dr. Qadri wrote a 600 page book titled 'Fatwa on Terrorism'. The "Introduction" of this book was written by Joel Hayward.

Who is Joel Hayward? Joel Hayward, an Air bombardment expert of UK Royal Air Force, works as Dr. Qadri's "Strategic Policy Adviser. What is the 'Strategic Policy' of Dr. Qadri? No one knows. What advise Dr. Qadri receives from Hayward? It is a closely guarded secret, Dr. Qadri will never share with anyone. May be Dr. Qadri needs Hayward's services for his revolution in Pakistan in line with Libyan revolution.
