Calls on all Americans to unite against bigotry, falsehood, and violence
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA expresses its strong objection to the anti-Islam hate ads on New York City and Philadelphia public transport. These hate ads promote a fabrication of “Jew-hatred” that is contrary to the true Islamic teachings of peace for all people of all faiths—including for Jews. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community condemns these ads as a form of hate speech and incitement to religious hatred.
"Such ads ignore the reality of Islam’s pluralistic teachings, and only foster hatred against Muslims under the guise of free speech.” said Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, National Vice President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA. “States are not moral agents, people are. Evil can only be surmounted when good people band together and decry such speech and actions.”
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA encourages all Americans to categorically condemn the religious bigotry and violence these hate ads foster. Islam celebrates Jews as equal human beings deserving of equal human rights, and we are open and eager to engage with all our fellow Americans on this important topic.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA mourns the passing of its former President, al-Hajj Rashid Ahmad American, who passed away in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on February 7, 2015, at the age of 91. To God we belong and to God we return.
Rashid Ahmad was born in 1923 in St. Louis, Illinois. He became an Ahmadi Muslim in 1947. In 1949, he traveled to Pakistan to study Islam. During his time in Pakistan, he became fluent in Urdu and Punjabi. While there, he affectionately received the moniker of “American”, which he adopted to his name. Mr. Ahmad returned to America to share Islam with his family, friends, and community. After performing the pilgrimage to Mecca in 1998, he earned the title of al-Hajj, a performer of Hajj.
Aside from his involvement with the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, he was also a staple in his Milwaukee community. Mr. Ahmad regularly appeared on the TV program Islam Live on public TV.
“Rashid Ahmad American was a role model for thousands of people. His humble nature touched everyone and he will be greatly missed by friends, family, and our Community.” said Wasim Malik, Vice President Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, “We have the utmost respect for him and offer our heartfelt prayers for Mr. Ahmad and his grieving family. Members of our Community, young and old, will miss him dearly.”

Supports President’s call to remain united against all religious extremism
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA commends President Obama’s powerful remarks against extremism at the annual prayer breakfast. In recognizing that terrorism has no religion the President stated, “And lest we [Christians] get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”
Furthermore, at a time of rising Islamophobia and anti-Muslim discrimination and violence, President Obama reinforced his commitment to serving America’s religious minorities: “And if, in fact, we defend the legal right of a person to insult another’s religion, we’re equally obligated to use our free speech to condemn such insults — and stand shoulder to shoulder with religious communities, particularly religious minorities who are the targets of such attacks.”
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA has long advocated for religious tolerance, pluralism, and respectful dialogue. “As Muslims and as Americans, we celebrate President Obama’s compassionate support for religious tolerance, pluralism, and respectful dialogue,” said Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, National Vice President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA. “Islam and Prophet Muhammad teach us to work together with all people to promote peace and mutual respect. We remain committed to working together with President Obama and all Americans towards a stronger and more tolerant nation.”
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA implores the President to continue his efforts to combat anti-Muslim discrimination in America—both in the private sector and among government officials.
