Interfaith Event Held in Slough to Promote Peace

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Slough held a Virtual Event to promote peace, with a live stream on their YouTube channel.

The event, “Muhammad – The Champion of Peace”, was attended by over 350 participants from as far away as Chicago, Germany and Belgium, with a large number of Slough residents taking part.

Speakers at the event included Councillor Preston Brooker, the serving Mayor of Slough, Councillor Jackie Slater from Burnham Parish Council and Reverend Margaret Dudley, Methodist Minister for the Thames Valley Circuit.

Atiq Ahmad Bhatti, President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Slough said:

“This was our second large scale virtual event during lockdown, the first being our annual Peace Symposium last year. This time around, the event was streamed live on YouTube. I am thrilled that so many guests were able to join us, and I especially thank our guest speakers who supported the event. We felt it was important to speak about  the life of the Prophet of Islam, who championed peace between all faiths through example and conduct.”
