The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA condemns ISIS attacks in Paris as an attack on humanity. Reports state at least 128 dead with around 180 injured. “ISIS claims these attacks protect Prophet Muhammad’s honor, when in fact this does him the greatest dishonor,” said Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, National Vice President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, “They practice a false ideology which will be trumped only by a better ideology, which is True Islam.” We pray for the speedy recovery of the injured and offer our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims.
About Ahmadiyya Muslim Community:
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a dynamic, reformist and fast-growing international movement within Islam. Founded in 1889, the Community spans 206 countries with membership exceeding tens of millions. Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, established in 1920, is among the oldest American-Muslim organizations. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the only Islamic organization to believe that the longawaited 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 Prophet of Islam, 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.
