Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA seeks to strengthen interfaith relations

 The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA looks forward to President Obama’s first mosque visit at the Islamic Society in Baltimore, MD. This visit comes at a time of rising Islamophobia and anti-Muslim violence. In an Oval Office address last December the President implored,  “Muslim Americans are our friends, and neighbors; our co-workers, and sports heroes – and our men and women in uniform defending our country.” We welcome the President’s ongoing drive to build a strong relationship between Muslims and non-Muslims in America, as these efforts also strengthen national security.

 “President Obama’s visit during tense times comes as a reassurance to all American Muslims,” said Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, Senior National Vice President of Ahmadiyya MuslimCommunity USA, “that American Muslims are part and parcel of the American fabric. We will continue work together to make America a better and safer nation by inviting all Americans to stand united against extremism, and with the narrative of true Islam.”

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA will be onsite at the President’s visit and is available for interviews immediately after the meeting.

Invites all Americans to join efforts with the President

As the nation’s oldest Muslim organization, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA applauds President Obama’s call to root out extremist ideology by partnering with American Muslims.

Since 1920, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has been at the forefront of combatting radicalization and terrorism in America. We actively rebuke extremist ideology by condemning violent Jihad in favor of an intellectual Jihad of the pen. We educate our youth on true Islam’s pluralistic teachings and train them to serve all humanity with blood drives, food drives, and interfaith dialogues.

“Prophet Muhammad taught loyalty to your country of residence is part of your faith. The true Khalifa of Islam, Mirza Masroor Ahmad, has continued to champion this wisdom today,” said Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, Senior Vice President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, “and therefore as American Muslims, we find no conflict between our identities as Muslims and our identities as Americans.”

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community responds to the President’s call by elevating our century long efforts to combat extremism in America. We demonstrate with action and a sustainable model that no conflict exists between American and Islamic values. Accordingly, the Community calls for dialogue with all Americans to understand true Islam as practiced by Prophet Muhammad. We

invite all Americans to join us in overcoming extremism by attending our town hall meetings, our open house mosque sessions across our 70 chapters nationwide, and on social media @MuslimsforPeace.

Nation’s Oldest and Largest Muslim Organization condemns rise in violence against Sikhs

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA offers its condolences to the Sikh American community for the increasing violence and extremism they are facing on account of their faith and Punjab/South Asian appearance. Most recently on January 1, 2016 a Sikh man, 68-year-old Gurcharan Singh Gill, was stabbed to death in Fresno, California. Given the recent backlash against religious minorities, the Fresno police have not ruled out the possibility of a hate crime. This brutal murder followed another unprovoked and vicious attack on a Sikh man, 68-year-old Amrik Singh Bal, on December 26, 2015, which is being actively investigated as a hate crime. Since 9/11, Sikh Americans have tragically experienced increasing harassment and violence at the hands of bigots and anti -Muslim extremists.

“This violence and senseless loss of life is tragic and condemnable,” said Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, Senior Vice President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, “We extend our condolences to the Sikh Community and the families of all who have been killed and harmed.”

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA stands in solidarity with the Sikh Community, and encourages all Americans to stand united against extremism.
