Global Muslim Caliph urges for unity amongst Brexit uncertainty and warns of nuclear war


Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community warns of risks of further escalation of India-Pakistan and continued threat of Daesh!

Speaking at the 16th National Peace Symposium at the UK’s largest mosque, the Caliph of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, said:

“The world is stuck in a vicious cycle of conflict and counter-conflict, as rivalries ferment and hatreds become ever more deeply entrenched. No one knows where such issues will finally lead us or how horrific the consequences will prove to be.”

“It is said that the terrorist group Daesh is on the verge of collapse and that their so-called Khilafat is finished. Yet, experts also warn that though Daesh has lost its territory, its hateful ideology persists and its members who have survived are now scattering and could eventually regroup and perpetrate attacks in Europe or elsewhere.”

During his keynote address, the Caliph warned about the threats posed by the rise of nationalism and the potential negative impact of Brexit on global unity.

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“One of the core reasons underpinning their (far-right) popularity has been widespread immigration, which has caused resentment and a belief that existing indigenous citizens are being short-changed in order to fund and support immigrants.”

“All that most people desire is the ability to provide for their families and it is only when such opportunities are denied to them that they seek to leave their homes in search of a better life. Accordingly, the long-term solution to the immigration crisis has to be to establish peace in war-torn countries and to help the local people, who have been forced to endure lives of misery and danger, to live peacefully.”

On Brexit, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“Remember that the strength of Europe lies in its remaining united and together as one. Such unity will not only benefit you here in Europe but at a global level will be the means for this Continent to maintain its strength and influence.”

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“The Islamic viewpoint is that peace can best be achieved through unity. Yet, regretfully, instead of uniting, we are seeking separation and prioritising our individual interests over the collective interests of the world.”

Prior to the event, His Holiness also attended a Press Conference where he was asked about Shamima Begum.

“When this issue started, at that time our stance was she should be allowed to come to the country for the sake of the child and the woman should face trial. Unfortunately, the child has now expired.

“She claims herself to be Muslim, so then Muslim countries should show sympathy to her. And if the British government has stripped her nationality, then any other country should adopt her, any Muslim country. Since her parents were from Bangladesh, the first duty is of Bangladesh to take her as their national.”
