HEAD OF AHMADIYYA MUSLIM COMMUNITY URGES MEMBERS IN INDONESIA TO REMAIN STEADFAST
The Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad has responded to the ongoing persecution of the Ahmadiyya Community in Indonesia.
“For a long time great injustice and cruelty has been perpetrated against our Jama’at (Community) in Pakistan. Currently Ahmadis in Indonesia are also being persecuted. Thus injustices against our men, women and children are being allowed. Our properties are being burnt down.
The root cause of this persecution is the influence of the Mullahs and because the Government is fearful of losing its own power it bows down to their demands. The Mullahs have always created disorder in the name of religion and by doing so they continue to disobey the true teachings of Islam.
I say to all Ahmadi Muslims who are subject to persecution that they should always remember that their Helper is God Almighty and so they should always continue to remain strong in their faith.”
Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Indonesia have been subjected to great cruelty in recent months. Recently a Mosque owned by the Community in the town of Sukabumi, West Java was burnt down. Further a religious advisory panel recently recommended that the Community be banned in the country.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is committed to promoting a message of love and peace for all of mankind. The Community’s motto is ‘Love for All, Hatred for None’.
