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.
