Terrorist acts committed by Islamic extremists around the world have made life difficult at times for Muslims living in B.C. Leaders at the new Baitur Rahman mosque in Delta, aware of TV-fed perceptions, are at pains to emphasize their friendly intentions.

“We promote love for all and hatred for none,” says Rizwan Peerzada, president of a 124-year-old Islamic sect known as Ahmadiyya Muslim.

Ahmadi is a relatively new branch of Islam – Shia and Sunni are others – which has millions of followers in 200 countries around the world.

Regional president Muhammad Chaudhry says fanatics can “hijack” religions for their own purposes.
