Mary Kate Cary of USNews.com wrote a blog today titled: Islam Is a Religion of Peace? Fine, but Let’s See Some Proof
My comment is that the proof is Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (AMC). AMC is a dynamic, fast growing international revival movement within Islam. Founded in 1889, AMC is established in 193 countries with membership exceeding tens of millions. AMC is the leading Islamic organization to categorically reject terrorism in any form.
Over a century ago, its founder, Ahmad, emphatically declared that an aggressive “jihad by the sword” has no place in Islam. In its place, he taught his followers to wage a bloodless, intellectual “jihad of the pen” to defend Islam and revive morality and peace in society. To this end, Ahmad penned over 80 books and tens of thousands of letters, delivered hundreds of lectures, and engaged in scores of public debates.
His book “British Government and Jihad” is a master piece on the subject. His successors has continued his message of love and peace. Another masterpiece on the subject is “Murder in the name of Allah” by Mirza Tahir Ahmad, his fourth successor. They are all available freely on the Internet: Islam, Jihad and Terrorism
AMC holds conferences and inter-religious dialogue in all parts of the world to remove misconceptions about Islam and to eradicate intolerance from the Muslim world by presenting the pure Islamic teachings based on Quran and traditions of Prophet of Islam, which is nothing but peace. It is ironic that Ahmadiyya Muslim followers are being persecuted in many Muslim countries because of this.
