UK: Slough Ahmadi Youth Raise More than £3,000 Ahead of Remembrance Sunday

“We must remember that 400,000 Muslims fought for Britain in World War 1. Islam is a religion that requires loyalty to the country in which we live so what could be more natural than honouring those who fought for it?”

MEMBERS of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community have raised over £3,100 for the Royal British Legion poppy appeal in just two days of fund raising.

A 30 strong team of fund raisers spent the weekend collecting money for the appeal at various collection points and president of the community, Atiq Ahmad Bhatti, was amazed at the generosity of the general public.

He said: “Every year, members from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community U.K. raise thousands of pounds for the Poppy Appeal throughout the U.K., at supermarkets, football stadiums and airports.

“The generosity of the British Public has, like always, far exceeded our expectations. They have donated an incredible amount towards this most important appeal.

“We must remember that 400,000 Muslims fought for Britain in World War 1. Islam is a religion that requires loyalty to the country in which we live so what could be more natural than honouring those who fought for it?”

This year will also see the Ahmadiyya Muslim community lay a wreath at the remembrance Sunday ceremony in Burnham. This is the 4th year the Muslim community has done this and it is something that Atiq sees as a big honour.

He said: “To lay the wreath for all those who fought to keep us safe, irrespective of faith, is and always remains a humbling experience. We stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of the U.K. is mourning and remembering those who fought for our country.”

‘As Muslims it is our responsibility to show loyalty to our country of residence and work for the betterment of our country.’

It’s almost Remembrance Day, which means many of us will be pinning our poppies to our lapels.
It also means that it’s that time of year when everyone suddenly claims that Muslims want to ‘ban’ poppies, or that poppies ‘can’t be worn’ in areas with large Muslim communities.

The usual stuff – and this year, like every other year, it’s total bull.

In fact, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association has been out in the cold and rain today selling poppies for the Royal British Legion.

Volunteer Abdul Ghalib Khan told BBC Asian Network’s Nihal that the organisation is aiming to raise around £20,000 for servicemen and veterans in the UK.

And AMYA tweeted that more than 600 people have gone out selling poppies.

The Royal British Legion community fundraiser co-ordinator Deborah Armantrading said: ‘AMYA have been crucial in raising funds for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal for several years participating in mass collections all over the UK.

‘The Legion are extremely pleased with the enthusiasm and commitment from all of the volunteers.

‘We enjoy working with AMYA as they are dedicated and passionate about their charity work, and the Poppy Appeal would not be the same without their help.’

Mirza Waqas Ahmad, National President of AMYA said: ‘The Holy Prophet of Islam, Muhammad (pbuh) said that to love ones country is part of your faith. This is true Islam.

‘As Muslims it is our responsibility to show loyalty to our country of residence and work for the betterment of our country.

‘We therefore hope that our participation is a clear indication of our desire for peace and unity between all peoples, nations and religions.’

UK: 38,000+ Ahmadiyya Muslims come together to tackle extremism

A festival held in the middle of a field in rural Hampshire brought 30,000 Muslims together to try and tackle extremism.

The ‘Jalsa Salana’, which was held over the weekend in Alton, saw thousands of Ahmadiyya Muslims attend to discuss tackling misinterpretations of Islam. Now in its 50th year, the festival is open to everyone, in the hope of dispelling beliefs that Islam is a violent religion.

The event kicks off by hoisting the Union Jack as a mark of loyalty to Great Britain. Lasting for three days, the Caliph – the leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community – delivered speeches to promote the peaceful teachings of the religion.

The Ahmadi community has been running a nationwide campaign called “unite against extremism” in order to try and tackle terrorism.

Ahmadi Muslims are heavily persecuted by other Muslims as they believe their religion’s founder, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, is the Messiah as prophesied by the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
