News: Muslims Want Violence Against People of Other Faiths


Norway: Politicians fear conflict among MuslimsAmadiyyah Times

“This is the duty and responsibly of the religious and  civic leaders to inform the younger generation. We have to accept that the Ahmadiyya community exists and that they have the same rights in Norwegian society that we have. We cannot afford to have differences evolve.”

Admitting that there are Muslims who would like to exercise violence against other people of faith in Norway hurts politician Akhtar Chaudhry. He is now asking his brethren to show tolerance.

Furuset: It was the Lokalavisen Groruddalens' coverage of security around the opening of the Ahmadiyya mosque congregation at Furuset that caused MP Akhtar Chaudhry (A) to react.

Armed police, the mosque's own guards and people associated with PST's bodyguard service were in place to protect the faithful who have been victims of threats, violence and murder in several countries.


Freedom of religion

The so called mainstream Muslims do not recognize the Ahmadiyya community and consider their members "infidels" due their interpretation of Islam. Chaudhry shares their theological version. Nonetheless, he believes Ahmadiyah sect should have the right to freely practice their faith.

“I want to make it absolutely clear that my theology is really in disagreement with this community and we stand on opposite sides when it comes to faith. But just as we the mainstream Muslims want religious freedom, peace and security for my faith and religion, I must also declare that they [Ahmadiyya] have the same rights,” says Chaudhry. More Here
