The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community International, under the guidance of its Caliph Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, launched a global campaign last month #voicesforpeace to bring an end to the war in Gaza and establish peace.
Since then, we’ve held global forums across the world calling for peace in Gaza including at the UK Houses of Parliament and at Capitol Hill.
Our Inspiration: A Message from His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad
In his Friday Sermon on October 13, 2023, His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the worldwide Caliph of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, addressed the ongoing conflict between Hamas and Israel. His Holiness expressed deep concern about the indiscriminate response of the Israeli government, emphasizing that the conflict’s repercussions would extend far beyond the intended targets.
“Whatever injustice and cruelty Hamas committed, the response to that or war should have been restricted to Hamas. However, the (indiscriminate) response of the Israeli government is extremely dangerous and it seems that this conflict will not end here,” said His Holiness. He warned of the severe and overwhelming bombardment that has turned Gaza into dust, causing immense harm to innocent women, children, elderly, and civilians.
Challenging Biases in Media Coverage
During the Friday Sermon on October 27, His Holiness highlighted the clear bias in Western media coverage of the war between Hamas and Israel. He pointed out that some stories and angles receive undue prominence, amplifying one side of the story while sidelining the other.
“True justice requires presenting all affairs. Let the world determine who the oppressor and oppressed are, to what extent this war is warranted and at what point it should end,” stated His Holiness. He emphasized the importance of presenting all perspectives to the world, rather than providing one-sided coverage.
