A delegation of the Liberal Party of Canada visited Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, at the Baitul Islam Mosque in Peace Village, Vaughan on 4 July 2012.

The visiting delegation included Justin Trudeau MP, son of former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and former MP Navdeep Bains.

Justin Trudeau MP, who many view as a future Prime Minister, said it was an honour to meet His Holiness. He said that in his particular constituency there were more than a dozen Mosques and a significant Muslim population. He said that he was working to eliminate all forms of ‘Islamaphobia’ and to promote integration.

Speaking about the issue of integration, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“Islam is an open religion which teaches mutual respect. And so if you are a true Muslim you should be willing and able to integrate in any part of the world.”

His Holiness also explained that true Mosques were open for all people to come and worship if they desired.

Navdeep Bains also thanked Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad for meeting with him. He informed His Holiness that there was a strong Sikh community in Canada many of whom were based in British Columbia and Ontario. Briefly conversing in the Punjabi language, he also briefed His Holiness about his family background.

    These sort of blessed meetings and exchange of views with the leadership of political parties, especially when these ‘sittings’are taking place in the Peace Villages, surrounding the Ahmadyya ‘Baitul Islam’ Mosque, Vaughan, surely these ‘moots’ will InshaAllah lead to the real peace of mutual love and respect for each other. His Holiness Hadhart Al-Khamis has pinpointed the fact that Islam is an open religion, regarded as ‘deen-e-fitrat’ and it believes in ‘love for the country is part of Islamic faith’, and this will surely lead to the successful integration of Ahmadis in their adopted society. Huzur-e-Anwar also pointed out that our mosques are open to all people, worshipers, to say their prayer in our places of worship. Such a gesture will also help the process of social integration, by the grace of God.
    And a word for our Sikh brother,Mr Bains Sahib,” Ji ayanu, Sattey Khairan. Jey tun mera howain, sab jag tera ho”,it means in Punjabi language that if you maintain a link with God ASlmighty, the Creator of the universe, then the whole world will be at your disposal. Here one is reminded of a historical sentence of Hadhart Khalifatul Masih Al-Rabay, which conveys that Canada is so peaceful and beautiful we wish that the whole world become like Canada’. Let all of us say to it, a loud ‘Ameen.’
