Cllr Parminder Birdi was among 500 delegates invited to the event, which took place at the Guildhall on February 11, hosted by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association in the UK to celebrate its centenary year.

With the theme ‘God in the 21st century’, the conference was introduced by the worldwide heard of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad (the Khalifa of Islam), who said: “The urgent and critical need of the world today is to establish peace and faith in God. If the world understood this reality, then all countries, whether large or small, would not, in the name of defence spending, allocate millions and billions of dollars to expand their military capabilities.

“Rather, they would spend that wealth to feed the hungry, to provide universal education and to improve the living standards of the developing world.”

Speaking afterwards, Cllr Birdi said: “There were a lot of good speakers. The message of universal ‘one-ness’ was quite appealing. In this time and day, much more of that is needed.

    Zia Shah sahib, we Ahmadis should avoid using false titles such as “Khalifa of Islam”. The correct title is “Khalifa tul Masih”. Please maintain the standard of your publication and avoid using feel-good or inflammatory language.

    Islam does not have a khalifah, nor did Muslims elect Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad sahib to be their Khalifa. In fact majority of Muslims don’t consider him to be a Muslim. How can he be their Khalifa?

    Each sect has it’s own leader. It is foolish to impose one on others. This attempt at changing the tile is similar to Government of Pakistan changing Rabwah’s name to Chenab Nagar without regard to wishes of its inhabitants.

    ‘Love for all, hatred for none’.

    Muhammad Ahmad: the term ‘Khalifa of Islam’ did not originate with The Muslim Times, but came out of the UK. (I trust they are reading your comment also).
