Lord Avebury was recipient of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Peace Prize in 2009

Following the death of Lord Eric Avebury on Sunday the 14th of February 2016, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad has said:

I was extremely saddened to hear about the passing of my dear friend, Lord Eric Avebury earlier today. On behalf of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, I would like to extend my condolences to Lord Avebury’s wife, children and other family members.

Lord Avebury was a tireless campaigner for human rights and spent his life working towards establishing peace in the world. Indeed, it was his exemplary work in this field that led him to being the very first recipient of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Prize for the Advancement of Peace. Most certainly, Ahmadi Muslims across the world will miss Lord Avebury and will forever hold sentiments of deep respect for him.

I pray that God Almighty grants patience to Lord Avebury’s family and all of those left bereaved at this difficult and sad time.

  1. I met Lord Avebury on many occasions. He was a true friend of our Jamaat and loved meeting Ahmadis. I found him to be an extremely dignified, honourable and a very humble gentleman. May his soul rest in peace.
