Muslim scholars hold summit in Forest Gate

Renowned Muslim scholars Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri and Dr Abdul Qadir Gillani met in Forest Gate to discuss ways of tackling Islamic extremism.

The two Muslim religious leaders held talks at the Minhaj ul-Quran International centre in Romford Road on Friday where Dr Gillani accepted an invitation from Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri to attend the Peace for Humanity conference at Wembley Arena this month.

Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri is the founder of Minhaj ul-Quran International and a long standing opponent of Islamic radicalism.

Dr Gillani is the head of Markazi Jamaat Ahl al-Sunna, the UK’s largest orthodox Sunni Muslim organisation.
