AN EXHIBITION promoting peace and unity in British communities will be held in Romsley this weekend.
Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is running the event at St Kenelm Church Hall, in Bromsgrove Road, on Saturday, October 21 from 12pm to 2pm.
It is part of the organisation’s ‘United against Extremism’ campaign, which is aimed at countering extremist rhetoric and drive home a message of peace.
The event will begin with a presentation on the history of the UK Ahmadiyya Muslim community, whose motto is “love for all, hatred for none”.
Displays promoting peace with translated excerpts of Quranic verses along with other literature will then be viewable. Tea and biscuits will be served to participants.
Mubashir Nadeem, president of AM Elders Association and auxiliary organization of Ahmadiyya Community Halesowen, said: “As a Muslim community we believe that it is our duty to serve this country and to stop extremism, particularly in the name of Islam – which teaches us peace, loyalty, freedom, equality, respect and love for all.
“We stand united with all who oppose extremists because our strength stems from our unity.
“The campaign will send a clear message that IS has nothing to do with Islam and that extremism will never succeed.
“The campaign that has featured a full-page advertisement in national press, will also see the distribution of half a million leaflets across the UK, to highlight Islam’s rejection of extremism and its emphasis on peace.”
