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.
“if they’re shooting at you – you know you’re doing something right.”
Since 2012, the BBS has embraced direct action, following the example of other like-minded groups. It raided Muslim-owned slaughter-houses claiming, incorrectly, that they were breaking the law. Members demonstrated outside a law college alleging, again incorrectly, that exam results were being distorted in favour of Muslims.
Now that a Tamil adversary has been defeated, Muslims seem to be these nationalists’ main target, along with evangelical Christians whom they accuse of deceitfully and cunningly converting people away from Buddhism.
We have spoken here on the VirtualMosque before about the myth that all Buddhists are peaceful people. From the atrocities committed in places like China and Burma it is clear that there are many who quickly turn to extreme violence if they are unhappy.
Now in Sri Lanka, an aggressive group has come together to defeat the ‘Muslim threat’.
Time and again he and his colleague bracket the word “Muslim” together with the word “extremist”
From anti Muslim rallies, where Buddhists have killed people and burnt homes and businesses to the ground, to attacking slaughter houses and colleges under the guise of stopping the ‘Muslim threat’, it seems that the Buddhist teaching of peace is a forgotten memory.
Moderate Buddhists have also been targeted by hard-line ones.
Last year Rev Wathareka Vijitha Thero was abducted, rendered unconscious, tied up and forcibly circumcised – he says this was meant as a gesture of ridicule because he had worked for closer cooperation between Buddhists and Muslims.
For Buddhist Monks the promise not to kill is the most important of their pledges, and they believe that the principle of non violence is more central to Buddhism than any other major religion.
This guidance of peace seems not to include Muslims when you look at China, Burma or Sri Lanka however. The stunning advancement of technology has meant that atrocities from around the World can be reported in seconds and the Buddhists can no longer hide behind the myth of a non violent religion.
Life imprisonment is not enough for blasphemers; the only permissible punishment is the death penalty, this according to a recent ruling by Pakistan’s Federal Sharia Court, which struck down Section 295 C of the Pakistan Penal Code, leaving the death penalty as the only possible form of punishment. Together with Sections 295 A and 295 B, Section 295 C constituted the so-called ‘blasphemy law’.
In the UK non-Lahore Ahmadi Muslims always tell us that their interpretation of Islam allows minorities complete freedom. Yet when we look at any country where Sunnis are in a majority we find the situation is totally the opposite.
For example, it is common knowledge that in Pakistan Sunnis falsely accuse members of minorities of insulting the Holy Prophet (pbuh) or the Holy Quran. If the accused is set free by the courts he or she is usually then killed by a mob – so much for rule of law.
Now the Pakistan Federal Shariat Court has decided that anyone convicted of blasphemy shall be killed for their “crime” and no other punishment is possible.
The Holy Quran tells Muslims that if at the end of a discussion they cannot convince an unbeliever they should simply say to him: “carry on living the way you want to and let Allah decide what He will.” What a magnificent teaching of tolerance which is ignored by the Muslims!
In the video below we discuss this in more detail.
We are told that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance but the actions of Muslims belie this.
A police investigation was launched last month, after police saw leaflets being handed out calling on Muslims to murder Ahmadis.
A teenage Ahmadiyya girl, who did not want to be named, said she was “shaken and stirred” after being handed a leaflet written in Urdu saying “Kill a Qadiyyani and doors to heaven will be open for you”.
She said: “I was coming back from shopping and a guy handed me the leaflet. While I read it he asked me to come back. I told him I was an Ahmadi girl and he demanded I return the leaflet, but I refused.
“He was about 22 or 23 years old and had a long beard.”
A spokesman for Kingston police confirmed there was an ongoing investigation.
