Earlier today, the local administration (MPS) in the State of Selangor, Malaysia issued the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat with a notice to remove the ‘Kalima Shahada’ from its central mosque within two days.
This notice follows a series of statements given in the local media by Dr Hassan Mohamed Ali a State Official in opposition to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat condemns this latest act which confirms the rising persecution of its Jamaat in Malaysia. The Kalima Shahada is the basic creed of belief for each and every Muslim and thus being forced to remove this from its Mosque violates the right of Ahmadi Muslims to express their religion freely and without interference.
It is hoped that the State authorities retract from their victimisation of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, which is and always has been, a peaceful community whose members are totally loyal to their respective Governments.
