Press Releases

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA expresses its grave concern at the repeated bombing of Syria. The Community expresses its deep remorse at the ongoing loss of life, and calls upon the United States and allied leaders to exercise restraint and uphold justice. Justice demands prudence, patience, and reverence for all human life. Hasty, ill-advised actions will lead to devastating consequences for the entire world.

“The Qur’an teaches that when two nations are in dispute and this leads to war,” said the Community’s National Vice President Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah while referencing a lecture from the Khalifa of Islam, Mirza Masroor Ahmad, “then other governments should strongly counsel them towards dialogue and diplomacy so that they can come to an agreement and reconciliation on the basis of a negotiated settlement.”

Failure to engage in peaceful negotiations ensures additional loss of life and misery, and increasingly risks war proliferation causing untold devastation. Rather than resorting to bombing each other, the Community implores international leaders to come to the negotiation table on the tenets of justice and fairness.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA urges calm after acts of violence in Charlottesville, Virginia

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA urges calm after violence erupted in Charlottesville, VA at a planned white nationalists’ rally. Reports state that violence erupted immediately, leaving several people injured.

The extremists participating in this march chanted numerous violence inciting epithets including “Jews will not replace us.” History already records that such hate speech led to violence, genocide, and contributed to many deaths during World War II.

His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the Khalifa of Islam, addressed hate speech, stating, “Let it not be in the name of free speech that the world is destroyed.”

“Islam teaches self-restraint as the best speech,” states Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, National Vice President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, “This is a time for Americans to stand united against hate speech and embrace this Islamic principle of free speech based on civility and dialogue.”

We pray for the speedy recovery of the injured victims, and pray for justice.
