He condemned the killing at a news conference in Lagos, describing it as anti-Islamic and the handiwork of a number of people who were working against the unity of the country….
He added: “We should not take it easy with such society that kills at will. Nobody has the right to kill another person. Islam does not support killings. We are all equal before God.”
On the killing of the Al-Qaida leader, Osama Bin Laden, the Ahmadiyya Chief described it as a victory to the world.
He said: “If it is true that Bin Laden was the brain behind terrorism, then his death is a victory to the world.”
He, however, expressed disaffection with the manner at which the United States (US) had approached the fight against terrorism.
According to him, it would be better if the US could use dialogue to battle terrorism instead of attacking those countries or groups perceived to be supporting terrorism.
