Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat calls for peace during Press Conference at European Parliament

On 4 December 2012, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat and Fifth Khalifa, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad answered questions from a range of media outlets during a forty-minute Press Conference in the Press Room of the European Parliament.

The Press Conference took place prior to the Khalifa addressing the European Parliament. A number of global media organisations including from the UK, Spain, France, Belgium, Pakistan and other countries attended.

In response to a question from the BBC about Islam’s role in the world, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad explained that Islam’s core message was of peace.

His Holiness said:

“Islam’s message of peace is universal, which is why our motto is Love for All, Hatred for None.”

Responding to a question from a representative of the Spanish media, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said that all of the major religions in their original form taught a message of peace and so true Muslims believed in all of the Prophets. Each Prophet he said brought the message that there is One God.

In response to a question from a representative of Malta’s media, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said that the duty of Ahmadi Muslims was to bring mankind closer to God and to make the people of the world aware of their duty to safeguard each other’s rights.

Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said that in an effort to promote inter-faith harmony he had recently sent a hand-delivered letter to Pope Benedict saying that people of different faiths should look at the common factors that unite them, rather than focusing only on differences.
