Muslims Call for End to Antagonism & Violence

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community condemns newest French cartoon and calls on Muslims to respond with civility

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA strongly condemns the irresponsible decision by French magazine Charlie Hebdo to publish offensive cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.  Such a publication serves to add fuel to an already raging fire, and this nonsensical provocation must be condemned by all those seeking peace and order in the world.  Overt attempts to incite hatred and provoke a religious group do not constitute freedom.

Muslims Condemn Violent Reaction to Anti-Muslim Film

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community condemns killing of U.S. Ambassador to Libya and other U.S. diplomats

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA strongly condemns the senseless acts of violence against the U.S. diplomatic offices in Egypt and Libya as well as the murder of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and other U.S. diplomats.  The killing of any innocent person is completely wrong, and no religious or moral teachings anywhere in the world can sanction the killing of an ambassador or other representative of a State.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA fully supports the ongoing U.S. diplomatic efforts around the world and calls on all people of conscience to wholly condemn such barbaric and unjustifiable attacks against those working towards peace.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA condemns the vandalism committed on a new Sikh temple under construction in Sterling Heights, Michigan, on February 6th, 2012. In this targeted attack, vandals spray-painted the walls of the temple with an obscenity, a picture of a gun, a cross and a reference to the Prophet Muhammad. Such an incident illustrates not only ignorance of different faith traditions in America but also a growing religious intolerance that must be cured.
