The Charity Commission has opened a statutory inquiry into a London mosque where leaflets which called for the killing of a sect of Muslims were distributed.
The investigation has been launched following allegations in the public domain that the mosque was distributing literature from its premises promoting hatred towards the Ahmadi community. The BBC had reported in April that “piles of the flyers, which say Ahmadis should face death if they refuse to convert to mainstream Islam, were displayed in Stockwell Green mosque”.
The mosque, which is registered with the Charity Commission as Aalami Majlise Tahaffuze Khatme Nubuwwat but is also known as Stockwell Mosque, was visited by the regulator in May, and again in July 2016.

In order properly to analyse these speeches, it is necessary, to have a basic understanding of Islam, its terminology and its tropes. It is also important to have an understanding of the historical context of the Qur’an (the Revelation) and the Sunna (the practice of the Prophet Muhammad) and the contemporaneous circumstances in which the Revelations were made to Muhammad (in particular, the need for Muhammad and his followers to defend themselves against physical persecution at the time). The Court heard detailed evidence from experts on Islam and read extensive materials, including the entire Qur’an and the monograph “Milestones” by the 20th Century ideologue, Sayyid Qutb.
It is common ground that Islam is a religion of peace. The Qur’an is a book of peace. The words Islam, Muslim and Salaam all share the same Arabic triconsonantal root, s-l-m, which denotes “peace”. Islam forbids extremism, including extremism in religion. Islam forbids terrorism.
The Arabic word jihad or jihad means literally “struggling” or “striving”. It has a wide variety of religious meanings in Islam including ‘spiritual struggle’. Unfortunately, the word jihad has now become synonymous in everyday language with ‘armed jihad’ or ‘holy war’.
In the case of Shakeel Begg vs the BBC, the judge read the whole Quran before deciding the case and came away with the Lahore Ahmadiyya interpretation.
The Nobel prize in medicine has been awarded to a Japanese cell biologist for discoveries on how cells break down and recycle their own components.
Yoshinori Ohsumi, 71, will receive the prestigious 8m Swedish kronor (£718,000) award for uncovering “mechanisms for autophagy”, a fundamental process in cells that scientists believe can be harnessed to fight cancer and dementia.
Autophagy is the body’s internal recycling programme – scrap cell components are captured and the useful parts are stripped out to generate energy or build new cells. The process is crucial for preventing cancerous growths, warding off infection and, by maintaining a healthy metabolism, it helps protect against conditions like diabetes.

The Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement thus proclaims the absolute finality of the prophethood of Muhammad and also states that anyone that claims to be a Muslim must be accepted as a Muslim. No authority as the right to expel another Muslim from the fold of Islam; otherwise that leads to an environment of hostility and hatred amongst Muslims and leads to extremely bad consequences.
With that said, the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement also emphasizes certain teachings of Islam that have come to be ignored or forsaken

Money flows as charitable donations from ‘have’ countries like U.S.,. Canada, Pakistan, Germany and U.K. into AMJ International from where it is distributed into dubious projects around the world. The accounting in each country is kept up to date, but money gets lost in international transactions.
The actual work of the organization is carried out through just one charity?—?Al-Shirkatul-Islamiyyah, and curiously, its income and expenses almost balance every year.
Since Mirza Masroor Ahmad came to power, he has focused on investing in properties and totally unrelated to the goals of the organization. We see from the Panama Papers that the businesses are involved mostly in property investment.
The dubious accounting practises of the Qadiani Movement laid bare.

Unfortunately, it’s all too clear that some government officials just don’t understand how the internet works. After police in Nice, France were shamed online for forcing Muslim women to remove burkinis and other tradition-honoring apparel at the beach, deputy mayor Christian Estrosi announced that the city would sue people who post photos of police taking action against those women. That’s right — your Twitter post showing police officers doing their job (in a non-threatening situation, no less) could land you in court. These pictures “denigrate” the force and put officers in danger, Estrosi claims.
Rather than the pictures denigrating the Police perhaps it is the law in France, which empowers these armed policemen to force women to take their clothes off in public, that is the problem.
