The upcoming peace symposium, a key event of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, will be held at the largest Mosque in Australia, Baitul Huda (House of Guidance) on Saturday 8th September 2018. The event will promote a deeper understanding for people of all faiths and beliefs, and seeks to inspire a concerted effort for ‘lasting peace’. The event is expected to attract more than 800 people including leading politicians, diplomats, academics, religious and secular leaders, and members of the community.
The National President and Grand Imam of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Australia, Mr. I. H. Kauser said:
“This peace symposium provides a unique platform to leaders of all faiths and of no faiths, to sit under one roof, break the bread and discuss different ways and challenges in establishing lasting peace in our society. We, the Ahmadi Muslims, are eager to learn and spread the message of peace and harmony which is important and crucial than it has ever been. Our objective is to bring communities and leaders together and develop an alliance to establish peace and harmony in our society.”
Imam Kauser further said:
“This event is for all those who are interested in learning about peace building and community relations. Having people from different faiths, colours, cultures and backgrounds sitting under one roof is a sign of love, respect and harmony.”
The Ahmadiyya Muslim community has been leading a peaceful revival of Islam that stands for education, integration, loyalty and interfaith peace. It is also involved in various efforts to contribute towards charities such as the Red Cross, Clean Up Australia Day, National Tree Plantation, and feeding the homeless, just to mention a few. The motto of the community is “Love for all, hatred for none”.
