The Jalsa Salana event, held on a 200-acre farm in Hampshire, saw tens of thousands of Ahmadi Muslims come together to condemn “misinterpretations of Islam” and denounce extremism and terrorism.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community head Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad called for believers to “reject all forms of extremism” in the last of his five speeches.

“It is up to Muslims to stand up and reject all forms of extremism and terrorism. It is the task of Ahmadi Muslims to show the true teachings of Islam which are of peace love, mercy and compassion,” he said.
