On Saturday 26 March, thousands of members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community came together across 28 cities in the UK to raise awareness of the perilous danger the world finds itself in and to promote a message of peace to stop a potential Third World War.
People young and old, from all walks of life promoted the pathway to peace as outlined by His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the Caliph and Worldwide Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. His Holiness has been warning of a potential Third World War for over a decade.
Regarding the present crisis in Ukraine, the Caliph has said:
“The current world situation has become extremely precarious and there is a real danger the crisis (between Russia and Ukraine) can escalate and spread much further afield. Certainly, the situation is not just limited to one country, rather, many countries will be engulfed if the conflict continues to deteriorate. Its impact will be catastrophic and its horrendous consequences will continue to reverberate and impact upon generations to come. Thus, I pray that may Allah enable mankind to recognise God Almighty and may they stop toying with the lives of innocent people simply to fulfil their own worldly interests.” (Press Release 25 Feb 2022)
In March the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community launched a massive campaign across social media platforms in an effort to draw the world’s attention to this pressing matter. As part of this work around 1,000 members gathered at Westminster, London on Saturday 26 March. More than 100,000 leaflets have been distributed in central London and across the UK.
Regarding a devastating World War, His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad has said:
“The current world situation has become extremely precarious and there is a real danger the crisis (between Russia and Ukraine) can escalate and spread much further afield.” (Press Release 25 Feb 2022)
Mr Ibrahim Ikhlaf, Director of Outreach and Public Relations for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community UK said,
“It is our duty to advise mankind to establish a relationship with God the Almighty and through this to establish justice. The outcome of justice is peace. Otherwise the consequences could be horrific. We should reflect on the words of the Caliph, His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad who has been warning the world of the possibility of a world war for over a decade.”
