The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta strongly rejects, and unreservedly condemns the attacks on Christian Church in Peshawar, Pakistan, killing more than 78 and wounding 100 other worshipers. This is no doubt, an inhuman, heinous and cruel attack, which should be condemned. The Ahmadiyya Community condemns the attack in strongest terms, and demands the authorities to bring the culprits in front of justice as soon as possible. The Community also demands that sate should give full protection and security to all the citizens living in the country irrespective of their colour, creed, politics and faith.
The Community also condemns the terrorist attack on a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, by Al Shabaab militant group. In this attack 59 people have been killed and more than 175 taken to hospital.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat is a peace loving community, which believes in love, respect, tolerance, harmony and universal brotherhood. It respects the sentiments of the believers of all the faiths. And believes that all mankind is like a family and it can only look after the peace and security of each member, only if it lives like a close-knit family. The apparent differences in mankind are only for identification as to who is European, who is Asian and who is African. As humans we are all the same and therefore a person in Africa has the same sentiments as those of a person in Europe or America or a person living anywhere else in the world.
It believes that all Muslims are commanded to honour human dignity and have been made to promise that they will help to defend the followers of other faiths from unjust and cruel attacks as well, and it is the duty of the governments to provide security to the people of all the faiths living under their rule.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat believes in freedom of faith, and rejects any kind of violence and force for any reason whatsoever. The Community believes in the Quranic Teachings that “There is no compulsion in religion.” and condemns the use of force in the matters of faith, or in the name of religion.
We, the members of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat express our deepest condolences to the victims’ families in this difficult time and pray for the health of those who were injured in this attack. And we hope for swift action against the perpetrators of this heinous, inhuman and barbaric act. And we pray to God the Almighty that He makes this world a haven of peace, tolerance, harmony, liberty and universal brotherhood.
