Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Caliph to tens of millions of Muslims, will address the crowds in attendance at a three-day international gathering, known as the Jalsa Salana, organised by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

The conference, being held at Oakland Farm in Alton – the village where Jane Austen lived for the last eight years of her life – will focus on increasing the spirituality of the participants, as well as tackling issues facing the world’s second largest religion – including the rise of Islamic extremism, the growing threat of the far-right and Islamophobia.

The Ahmadiyya community has more than 100 chapters in the UK, with 35 Mosques, including the largest Mosque in Britain, and the first Mosque in London.

The movement was established in 1889, since when it has denounced all forms of extremism, with tens of millions of members in more than 200 countries.
