The Caliph to tens of millions of Ahmadi Muslims concluded the
largest Islamic convention in the UK with a condemnation of all forms
of extremism and terrorism.

More than 30,000 members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (AMC) from
over 100 countries gathered at the _Jalsa Salana _event, which took
place on a 200-acre farm in Hampshire.

On Sunday, His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad, delivered the concluding
address of the _Jalsa_.

During the event, His Holiness spoke about the rise of extremism and
continued instability in the world. He called for Muslims to return to
the true teachings of Islam.


“_It is up to Muslims to stand up and reject all forms of extremism
and terrorism. It is the task of Ahmadi Muslims to show the true
teachings of Islam which are of peace love, mercy and compassion.”_

The _Jalsa_ began on Friday with the traditional Friday Sermon and
the raising of the black and white flag of the AMC alongside the Union
Flag. On Saturday, the Caliph conducted proceedings from the ladies
marquee where 15,000 Muslim women witnessed His Holiness award prizes
to women for academic achievements and deliver a speech on the rights
and empowerment Islam affords them.

His Holiness delivered five speeches over the course of the weekend.

The purpose of the three-day international gathering is to promote
the true, peaceful teachings of Islam and challenge misinterpretations
around the world’s second largest religion.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community was established in 1889 in India and is
led by a spiritual caliphate, with tens of millions of adherents.
