Islamic meeting in rural England

35000 to attend convention to break down misconceptions

MUSLIMS from over one hundred countries will descend on Alton in the English Countryside to pledge allegiance to a global caliphate this August.

A Hampshire farm temporarily turned “Islamic global village” will see thousands of participants pledge allegiance at the hand of the Caliph, His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad. The Caliph aims to tackle key issues and misconceptions about Islam, such as whether it is “a religion of peace or terror.” He said: “No matter what terrorists may claim, under no circumstances are indiscriminate attacks or killings ever justified.

“Islam has enshrined the sanctity of human life in the Holy Quran, which states: ‘Whosoever killed a person, it shall be as if he killed all mankind, and whoso gave life to one, it shall be as if he had given life to all mankind’”

The August event is the longest standing and largest Muslim convention in the UK.

It will address perceptions that Islam is incompatible with British values.

The Caliph said: “The need of the hour is for us to knock down the barriers of fear that divide us.
