In memory of the nearly 3000 victims of the terror attacks on 11th September 2001 in the USA representative of an Islamic Reform Movement in Switzerland called for blood donations. They want to follow with this gesture the teachings of Islam and contribute to a life-saving effort.
The campain of the “Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Switzerland” carries the slogan “Muslims for Life”. The Vice President of the Organisation, Sadaqat Ahmed, stated on Sunday that the aim was to collect 500 blood donations until the end of the year. The Organisation wants to demonstrate the Swiss values of salidarity and readyness to help and to give a sign against terrorism and fanaticism.
Terrorism contradicts the Koran.
Terrorist attacks are contrary to the holy book of the Muslims, the Koran. “The holy Koran confirms the teachings of the bible that life is sacred”, the organisation writes.
“It is written in the Koran, that anyone who kills one human, it is as if he killed all of humanity. And anyone who saves one human life, it is as if he save all of humanity.”
