The event will start with a presentation on the history of the UK’s Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, whose motto is “love for all, hatred for none”.

One of Britain’s oldest Muslim communities is to host a peace exhibition in Hagley as part of a new campaign to counter extremist rhetoric and drive home a message of peace.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community based in Halesowen is organising the exhibition which will take place at Hagley Community Centre, Worcester Road, on February 18 from 10am until noon.

The event, part of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community’s United Against Extremism campaign, follows a similar event held in Kinver last year.Halesowen Peace exhibition-2016-2

Mubashir Nadeem, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim elders association, said: “As a Muslim community, we believe it is our duty to serve this country and to stop extremism, particularly in the name of Islam, which teaches us peace, loyalty, freedom, equality, respect and love for all.

“We stand united with all who oppose extremists because our strength stems from our unity.

“The campaign will send a clear message that IS has nothing to do with Islam and that extremism will never succeed.

“The campaign will also see the distribution of half a million leaflets across the UK, to highlight Islam’s rejection of extremism and its emphasis on peace.”
