Ahmadi Muslims bring CT together for “True Islam Requires Patriotism” Symposium at New Haven City Hall
In the rude awakening of the Westminster attack, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community CT is bringing their nationwide True Islam educational campaign countering extremism to New Haven City Hall on Tuesday, April 4th. The dynamic interfaith and interdisciplinary symposium features representatives from the Department of Justice, Congress, Senate, Baitul Aman “House of Peace” Mosque in Meriden’s leadership, and other leading organizations in the fight against hatred. It clarifies eleven misunderstood values of Islam to help stem the rising tide of ignorance and bigotry plaguing our era and outlines Islam’s true peace-loving practice of love, loyalty, service, and moderation; core values that unite all Americans.
Discover how True Islam enriches our great country and collaborate with us for the keynote address at 6 pm to bridge the gap of 62% of our fellow compatriots not knowing a Muslim. This will be a unifying deliberation of pragmatic and patriotic proportions that you won’t want to miss!
Let’s come together to actually “make America great again” by living our motto “love for all. hatred for none”.
About Ahmadiyya Muslim Community & Connecticut Chapter:
Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a dynamic, reformist and fast-growing international movement within Islam. Founded in 1889, the Community spans more than 200 nations with membership exceeding tens of millions. Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, established in 1920, is among the first American-Muslim organizations and the largest united under one spiritual leader.
Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the only Islamic organization to believe that the long- awaited Messiah has come in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) of Qadian, India. Ahmad claimed to be the metaphorical second coming of Jesus of Nazareth and the divine guide, whose advent was foretold by the founder of Islam, Prophet Muhammad. The Community believes that God sent Ahmad, like Jesus, to end religious wars, condemn bloodshed and reinstitute morality, justice, and peace. Ahmad’s advent has brought about an unprecedented era of Islamic revival and moderation. He divested Muslims of fanatical beliefs and practices by vigorously championing Islam’s true and essential teachings. The worldwide Community is lead today by its peace-loving spiritual head Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the fifth Successor of the Messiah and Khalifa of Islam.
The Connecticut Chapter of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA was established in the late 1980’s under the leadership of its founding President Manzur Mannan. Its Mosque in Meriden was purchased in 2007, and was named Baitul Aman “House of Peace” by its current international leader Mirza Masroor Ahmad. In June 2016, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Meriden, Connecticut was awarded the United States Attorney’s Office National Security and Major Crimes Unit Award by the United States Attorney Deirdre M. Daly and Department of Justice. This was under the leadership of Dr. Mohammed Qureshi for the “courage, leadership, and tremendous generosity of spirit” in an exemplary response of compassion to the shootings its Mosque sustained in November 2015.
