Imam Killed Outside Mosque

As a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, we are saddened by the unfortunate and untimely deaths of the victims of  recent hate crimes. We pray for them and their families and hope that justice is served. Over the past few weeks we have seen an increase in hate crimes across the country.

A man continually harassed his neighbors because they were Arab and this ultimately led to the death of an innocent person because of his ethnicity. An Imam and his assistant were going to the mosque to worship the same God of Jesus and Moses, yet they were gunned down in broad daylight outside of the mosque. The Bible says “love thy neighbor” yet we continue to witness acts of hatred to our neighbors and fellow Americans. As these incidences increase, we must get to the root cause of this senseless violence. The language and rhetoric used by some politicians recently has been increasingly divisive. These are the people that we put our trust in to lead our great nation, so instead of calling for bans on individuals of entire religions and labeling whole groups, those in positions of influence should call for peace and understanding amongst the various sections of our American society.

  1. The media should focus on groups that are promoting the pure and true teachings of Islam. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has launched the True Islam campaign to combat this false narrative that is portrayed by extremists groups as well as Islamaphobes. The campaign introduces eleven points that are used by extremist and how their false ideologies go strictly against the teachings of Islam.
    Above is a sincere and timely advise for media to follow. Mere spreading Islamic hatred will further fuel the tense situation. Ahmadiyya is torch bear of correct Interpretation of Islam. All over Ahmadiyya Islam interpretation is welcomed. Why not to promote it to make this world a better place to live.
