In the aftermath of the Paris attacks, we’d all be wise to listen to the 5th Khalifa of theAhmadiyya Muslims Community who has repeatedly been giving viable solutions to remove the poison of ISIS while exhorting Muslims to be true to the faith they follow. He condemned the Paris attacks and prayed for its victims.

Ahmadis are Muslims who believe in the Promised Messiah, Mirza Ghulam Ahmadand are today lead by the 5th Khalifa, Mirza Masroor Ahmad who frequents worldParliaments reminding leaders to take considered, reasonable approaches to policy making with justice being the overriding principle.

He warned in 2014 that if ISIS were not ‘stopped in their tracks,’ they would cause great destruction in the world. He went on to condemn those groups or nations who were financing and supporting terrorist organizations emphasizing the need to cut off the funding of all terrorist groups.

In an interview with LBC in the UK, he called on the government to arm the police and monitor mosques for any extremist rhetoric to prevent youth radicalization.

This year he cited “unquenchable thirst for power, influence and resources” as the main reasons for conflicts today.

Just last year, at the Ahmadiyya Annual Peace Symposium, his Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad addressed the issue of ISIS shattering their ideology and in press conferences as well as private meetings has explained how stopping the funding and supply line of ISIS is the way to destroy them.
