Ahmadi Muslims condemn brutal murder of Alan Henning

Rafiq Hayat, National President Ahmadiyya Muslim Community UK, said:

“The world is witness yet again to barbaric acts of inhumanity that have sent shockwaves around the world.

“Our revulsion is compounded by the fact that this evil is perpetrated under the name of faith.

“Alan was a man who gave his time to help others displaced by war. A noble act to save lives, despite knowing the danger to his life. His murder is heartbreaking and utterly deplorable.

“The evil that ISIS perpetrates is the antithesis of all faiths. Muslims stand shoulder to shoulder with all others in an alliance of humanity to condemn this horrific act and this callous extremist group.

“The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, under the guidance of its Khalifa His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, stands united will all who reject extremism and will continue to counter hatred with prayers and work to uphold the true peaceful message of Islam.

“Our hearts go out to the family of Alan Henning. May God grant Alan peace and comfort his family during this difficult time.”
