His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad: the Worldwide Leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community

Watch video in CBC Canada site: 

The grisly murder of a soldier in the streets of London did more than shock.

It also shed light on what appears to be the latest face of extremism — lone wolf individuals who act without the benefit of a large organization.

CBC reporter Carolyn Dunn’s full piece on Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad’s visit to Canada and his views of recent extremist attacks will air on The National tonight.

It also coincided with a visit to Canada of Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad.

He is the world leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslims, a small sect of Muslim that have faced religious persecution for beliefs that fall outside the faith’s mainstream.

His visit gave CBC’s Carolyn Dunn a chance to sit down with his Holiness. She started by asking him about extremists who carried out recent attacks across the world.

“They claim that they are Muslim and they are doing according to the teachings of Islam, but they are … misconstruing the true teaching of Islam,” he said.

  1. Islam rejects all forms and manifestations of intolerance, violence and terrorism in the name of religion.

    Islam is peace and advocates for peace.

    I therefore vehemently condemn brutal, inhuman and callous act of murder of an innocent Soldier in UK recently. I am not sure if the killers were real Muslims or pretending to be Muslims. Murder of a human being is murder of humanity.

  2. The Holy Prophet of Islam Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) taught his followers not to harm people even with their tongues i.e. do not even verbally abuse another person and do not use the harsh words that can hurt the feelings of others. He also said that killing of an innocent person is like killing the whole mankind. These are the true teachings of Islam when it comes to establishing peace and harmony in the society. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the only sect of Islam who is spreading the true teachings of Islam in the world today.
    We are saddened by the senseless and tragic murder of an innocent soldier in U.K. People who killed the innocent soldier cannot be called Muslims even if they claim it because they did not follow the teachings of The Holy Prophet of Islam Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)
    Our hearts are aching over this tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the soldier and his family. May Allah grant patience to the entire family of the deceased soldier. Amen
