The global leadership of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam strongly condemns the brutal murders reported on Sunday 16th November, as against any teaching from the Holy Quran and in direct violation of the word of Allah.
ISIL have this morning released a video which purports to show the beheading of Peter Kassig, who took the name Abdul-Rahman after converting to Islam during his captivity.
The video also shows what appears to be the mass beheading of several captured Syrian soldiers. 16 soldiers who were murdered by 16 separate ISIS terrorists.
Shahid Aziz, the President of our UK Jamaat added the following statement;
We completely condemn these violent acts of murder by this terrorist group which does not represent Islam at all.
The Holy Prophet (pbuh) showed compassion and respect to all people regardless of colour, caste or creed and we must follow this sunnah of the Holy Prophet (pbuh).
The Promised Messiah Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad taught the message that Jihad is with the pen and not the sword, and we must spread Islam and combat our detractors by using the message of peace in the Holy Quran and the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (pbuh).
