GENTLE AHMADIYYAS. . .Peaceful Muslims
Ahmadiyya Muslim Community do not regard the Islamic prophet Muhammad as the last prophet. Ahmadi Muslims believe Ghulam Ahmad to be the Mahdi and promised Messiah. They are a small group founded in India at the end of the l9th century. They are persecuted by other Muslims all over the entire world and considered no better than Christians and Jews or even apostates. As apostates they should be killed according to Sharia Law.
In Bangladesh Islamic groups have demanded that Ahmadiyyas be considered as kafirs (infidels like Christians) Because of this designation it allows the radical Islamists to terrorize and even kill them.
In Indonesia also, Ahmadiyya Muslims are persecuted and a law was passed to prevent them from proselytizing their beliefs.
Pakistan does not even consider Ahmadiyyas to be Muslims and they are viciously persecuted.
Ahmadiyyas are curious however. They believe in Sharia Law also, but they renounce all violence. They are pacifists. All of which may confuse we Americans. It certainly confused Bill O’Reilly when he had an Ahmadiyya Muslim on his show to combat the violence written in the Koran. If O’Reilly wants to quiz a Muslim on the Koran, he would be more accurate to invite one that truly believes in all aspects of the Koran and Sharia Law, which includes a firm belief in death for infidels, kafirs, Christians, Jews, apostates and Ahmadiyyas.
Recently a group from the Ahmadyya Muslim Community handed out flyers in Times Square, which explained the origins of their sect and their rejection of all violence. They also purchased a short spot to show in Times Square and advertisements on city buses. They want America to know they are peaceful Muslims even though the majority of Muslims consider them kafirs.
Jihad Watch reports that Islamic extremists in Britain have been calling for the destruction of all Ahmadyya Muslims and the destructions of all their mosques. Some mosques have been vandalized and leaflets have been distributed calling for the murder of all Ahmadyyas.
Shiekyermami on his website openly advertises for Muslims to “Kill an Ahmadi and the doors to heaven will open for you.”
Hopefully the Ahmadyyas feel safe here in America where they are free to reject violence and Muhammad.
