Muslims Respond to Mosque Attack in Virginia
 
Attack on the new Mosque will not deter Ahmadi Muslims from completing the Mubarak Mosque
 
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat condemns the vandalism committed on their new Mubarak Mosque in Chantilly, Virginia, on 29th January 2012.  In this senseless act, vandals destroyed nearly every window on the first floor of the new construction, causing an estimated $60,000 worth of damage. 
 
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat hopes that this remains an isolated incident. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat is the oldest Muslim organisation in the United States and has spent decades presenting the true and peaceful message of Islam to the American public. It has thousands of members spread across the United States who are propagating a message of peace, tolerance and loyalty.
 
The President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat in the USA, Dr Ahsan Zafar said
 
“As Muslims who believe in the Promised Messiah, Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, we are a tolerant and patient people and we will continue with our work while the police will do their job. This Mosque will be a source of education, peace, love and understanding. And we will not let isolated cases of intolerance get in the way.”
 
The international Press Secretary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, Abid Khan, in London, said:
 
“The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat is based in 200 countries and wherever Ahmadi Muslims build mosques they are signs of peace, unity and inclusion. It is a real shame that our new mosque in Virginia has been attacked in this way. We believe that all places of worship, regardless of religion, should be respected.”
 
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat is grateful for the outpouring of support for the Mosque from the vast majority of the surrounding community.  Such expressions of support will further the common goal of fostering a tolerant and peaceful society.

    It could happen in so called model democracy and tolerant country unthinkable. Action attracts reaction. Could be US jamaat recently became very active in spreading the message of Ahmadiyyat. But opposition always paves the way of extra ordinary success so will it be this time also.

    It is not an appreciable act of free society which claims tolerance and freedom for all. On such an occasion, Islam teaches us to show patience and seek the help through paryers (Qur’an 2:154). This is the right time to show the exemplary teaching of Islam through our action.

    It appears as if Mr. Zubair has correctly concluded by saying: “Could be US jamaat recently became very active in spreading the message of Ahmadiyyat.”

    Such actions cannot divert the attention of members of Jamaat from their mission. which could be appreciated Holy Qur’an teaches patience and we should combat this action through patience and prayer

    To
    All Global Village Government’s, Commanders,Presidents and High Courts.

    The Messenger of Islam has guided mankind to practice good vs bad deeds. Praying is a good deed. Praying in the prayer places is the right of every believing men and women. It is the duty of all Government’s Commanders and Presidents to support all Minority Communities and let them pray according to their faith. Moreover Ahmadiyya Muslim community International memebrs are requested to help their Vigina Ahmadi Muslim Brothers in this criticle situation and defend together now. Thanks
