Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, one of the nation’s oldest Muslim organizations, joins its fellow Americans today in remembering and honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy of fighting for justice. As a passionate advocate for justice and equality, Dr. King called people toward a non-violent resistance against injustice. The need for justice is just as relevant now as it has ever been, and the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community remains committed to advocating for the Quranic tenets of absolute justice, kindness and kinship.
“Islam mandates the strict practice of absolute justice regardless of differences in faith, race, creed or any other distinction,” said Amjad Mahmood Khan, National Director of Public Affairs for Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA. “True Islamic teachings promote equal rights and command believers to love others as if they are one’s own kin. These teachings harmonize with Dr. King’s message who said, ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere’ — we remain committed to continuing the vital work of bringing people towards justice, kindness and love.”
