How does Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri's anti-terror fatwa define terrorism?

Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri, a former Pakistani lawmaker, has issued a 600-page fatwa that bans suicide bombing "without any excuses, any pretexts, or exceptions."

In the past, we've raised a number of issues regarding suicide bombing, and commented on a previous fatwa on terrorism. The first issue is how does one define terrorism?

We did not find a definition in Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri's summary in English.
