Ahmadiyya Muslim Community strongly condemns all terrorist acts and especially the continued brutality of the ISIS as most recently seen in the beheading of Japanese hostage Haruna Yukawa by the militant group which calls itself the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

A press conference was arranged by Jamaat Ahmadiyya Japan in Nagoya City Hall on Friday, January 23, 2015 at 3pm.

All major and local TV Channels with 20 tv cameras were present along with many newspapers journalists.

Mr Anees Ahmad Nadeem, National President & Missionary Incharge Jamaat Ahmadiyya Japan accompanied by Mr Sajjad Ahmad Shah, Mr Hizqeel Ahmad and Mr Talat Mahmood Ahmad attended the crowded press conference.

He said:

As a Muslim community of Japan, we earnestly pray that God Almighty protect all Japanese people from the harm and danger of these extremists and their ideology. The fact that these videos from ISIS are being presented in the name of Islam is truly grievous and painful.”

He went on to say:

All true and peace loving Muslims are troubled to see the rise of such ideologies which have nothing to do with the religion of Islam”.

Mr Anees further explained that Islam totally rejects terrorism. Islam means Peace and love. ISIS is claiming itself “Islamic State” but it does not means they are representing true Islam.”

If we read the teachings of Islam, if we read the Holy Quran and we try to understand the spirit of Islam, then nobody will agree with the image of Islam they are portraying. Nobody will accept their claims that they are Muslims.”

Mr Anees started the press conference with silent prayer.
