“We want to express from our words, from our deeds, from our actions that whatever the other people are saying, they are wrong.”

WSTERN Sydney saw hundreds of leaflets promoting Islamic love distributed last weekend. Similar leaflets, produced by members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, have already been distributed elsewhere in Australia and around the world.

They’re colourful little documents, aiming to build acceptance of Islam and bring down perceptions of Muslims being opposed to Western nations.

“There are images, not good images regarding Muslims that they are not good to their country,” Tasmanian Ahmadiyya Muslim community state president Dr Aamir Mahmoud told the ABC after the leaflets were delivered to households throughout Hobart.

“We want to express from our words, from our deeds, from our actions that whatever the other people are saying, they are wrong.”

To that end, the leaflets feature soothing quotes. “Our mosques and our teachings are filled entirely with peace, love and affection,” declares Ahmadiyya leader His Holiness Mirza Maroor Ahmad.

“We openly proclaim love of the country in which we live,” Ahmad also announces. “We are law-abiding.”
