London terror victims

A small gesture that is powerful and good but also harmful and dangerous

The small Ahmadiyya sect of Islam is known for condemning Islamic extremism and for doing charitable good works. Their community’s slogan is “Love for all, hatred for none” and unlike mainstream Islam sects Sunni and Shia they are tolerant of other religions. Their values are still not the same as Western values as women and men are segregated inside their mosques and their women still wear hijab. Pete and I visited Auckland’s Ahmadiyya mosque last year and found them as concerned about ” radical Islam” as we were.

The problem I have with the peaceful and tolerant Ahmadiyya is that they are used as poster girls for mainstream Islam by both?the media and politicians. They also promote their faith as being representative of Islam which gives the world a false impression of what Islam really is.

The Baitul Futuh Mosque has also been acting as the center for the ?Loyalty, Freedom and Peace Campaign? in order for the west to recognize Islam as a peaceful religion and to improve the Integration of Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
