Muslim Leader to Tell European Parliamentarians How to Achieve Lasting World Peace
LONDON, November 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community says religious texts hold key to conflict resolution
European Parliament, Brussels, Tuesday 4th December
An historic keynote address by the world leader of an Islamic movement, to be delivered in the European Parliament, will urge politicians to seek faith-inspired solutions for conflicts rooted in geo-political causes.
With the unfolding conflict in the Middle East clearly in mind, His Holiness Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, supreme Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, will tackle head-on the issue of eliminating extremism and promoting peace based on international justice.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is established in 200 countries and is one of the oldest Muslim communities across Europe and America. His Holiness Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad is the world's leading Muslim figure promoting peace. His addresses delivered around the world, including Capitol Hill and Westminster, have advocated ways to broker peace in an increasingly globalised and conflict-ridden world.
Fundamentally, His Holiness calls for the quest for justice to be put on a par with peace. He stresses that true justice springs from faith and that revealed scriptures, which millions of people hold dear, provide the framework for delivering that very justice they seek.
His Holiness said:
"The establishment of world peace is the most vital and pressing issue facing the world today. However, the truth is that peace and justice are inseparable - you cannot have one without the other.
"There is little doubt that restlessness and anxiety is increasing in the world, and so disorder is spreading, which is a clear indication that somewhere along the line the requirements of justice are not being fulfilled.
"World political leaderships have their creative and intelligent minds focused on ideas, plans and indeed a vision of peace. Thus, this issue does not require me to speak from a worldly or political perspective; instead my entire focus will be based on how to establish peace based on religion. For this purpose I shall present some very important guidelines based on the teachings of the Holy Qur'an."
His Holiness will deliver his address at the European Parliament, Brussels, on Tuesday 4 December. Hosted by The European Parliament 'Friends of the Ahmadiyya Muslims' Group, the event will be chaired by Dr Charles Tannock MEP with Vice-Chairs Baroness Sarah Ludford MEP, Tunne Kelam MEP and Claude Moraes MEP.
A press conference hosted by His Holiness will precede the main event.
