Leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA speaks with President Obama about 9/11 commemoration
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA’s National Vice President, Mr. Naseem Mahdi, attended the annual White House Iftar Dinner last night, along with other American Muslim leaders.
President Obama highlighted the many contributions and services of American Muslims. He also paid tribute to the brave men and women, including several American Muslims, who perished on 9/11: “We must be the America they lived for, and the America they died for.”
To commemorate the ten year anniversary of 9/11, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA has launched a nationwide “Muslims for Life” campaign across its 71 chapters to collect 10,000 bags of blood and save 30,000 lives.
“Our Community was honored to be invited to this year’s Iftar dinner at the White House,” said Mr. Mahdi. “We support the President’s call to honor the memories of our fellow Americans who perished on 9/11, and I had the distinct privilege to speak with him about our recently launched ‘Muslims for Life’ campaign.”
Founders of the “Muslims for Peace” and “Muslims for Loyalty” campaigns, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA invites Americans of all backgrounds to join the “Muslims for Life” campaign by giving blood and saving lives.
