This Ramadan I had the opportunity to attend the White House Iftar. And yes, it was an opportunity — one I embraced. Meanwhile, many Muslim leaders nationwide protested the Iftar, openly calling for a boycott. Some actively rejected Iftar invitations, citing the unjust war in Iraq, the unjust detentions of Muslims in Guantanamo Bay, the unjust siege on civilians in Gaza, and the unjust NSA spying on Muslims.

BEVERLY HILLS -- On the same day that Pakistan parliamentary elections were taking place, the leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community delivered a message of peace, unity and separation of religion and state.
Members of this Muslim community have been deprived of their basic right to vote in the country because of their beliefs, a discrimination His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad Khalifatul Masih V called "obnoxious."
Hundreds attended the globally broadcast lecture by the 62-year-old khalifa on Saturday at the Montage Hotel.
"The key to peace is to stop cruelty and oppression. ... Only then will global peace be delivered," said Ahmad.
Founded in 1889, this Islamic organization spans over 200 countries with membership exceeding tens of millions. Its current headquarters are in the United Kingdom, according to the Ahmadiyya's website.
In his first visit to the West Coast, the spiritual leader stressed what he called he true meaning of Islam and how it works toward global peace.
Global Voices: Ahmadis' mission of peace in an age of terror

Just weeks after the terrorist bombings at the Boston Marathon, the global leader of the world’s 10-million-plus Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has brought his religion’s message of peace, public service and uplift to the faithful of Southern California.
While those principles are embraced by most of the Muslim world, the Ahmadis' outlook is distinctive. The visiting khalifa, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, is critical of mixing religion and governance and points to the restive Middle East countries in the "Arab Spring" aftermath as examples of discord born of religious rule. He speaks laudingly of Western democracy and praises Israeli President Shimon Peres for his ideas on restoring stability to the conflict-plagued region.
The first West Coast visit of the khalifa was scheduled long before the April 15 attacks in Boston that have newly shaken the American public's sense of security and serenity. But in the nervous aftermath of that latest terror strike, which may or may not have had any connection to radical Islam, the need to tackle misconceptions and prejudices about Muslims is all the more obvious and challenging, in the view of the religious leader.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community held an interfaith meeting at Baitul Baqi mosque on Saturday, March 16th to tell Georgians why they love Muhammad (peace be on him), the Messenger of Peace.

The Ahmadi-Muslim Community’s belief is that jihad has nothing to do with swords and everything to do with explaining the true history of Islam.
