Photo: MELISSA KINEALY By MELISSA KINEALY Acts of terrorism are unac- ceptable to Ahmadi Muslims in Manukau so they're doing something about it. More than 50 volunteers from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in south Auck- land have been taking to the streets doorknocking and dropping pamphlets about Islam to spread a message of peace. They want to give people an insight into what Islam is all about as part of a Muslims for Peace initiative. So far 7000 pamphlets have been distributed. The movement is being led by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, and is hap- pening worldwide in more than 195 countries. The community's national secretary propagation Muba- rak Khan says terrorism has tarnished the image of Islam and it's important to share information on its true teachings. Terrorism is un-Islamic'' and less than 1 percent of Muslims are involved in ter- rorism acts, he says. What people are doing is mixing the political conflicts with the religion.'' The community's central missionary Shafiq-ur-Reh- man says the information campaign is all about letting people know what the true Islam is and talking with the public is a personal way to share the message. This is a message of peace from Islam.'' He'll be speaking about the religion, beliefs and topics surrounding equality and jus- tice at community's annual conference in Manukau this weekend. Hundreds of people are expected to turn out for the 22nd Annual Convention 2011 (Jalsa Salana) on Saturday. The conference is open to the public with refreshments and lunch provided by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Com- munity. It starts at 10.30am at 20 Dalgety Drive, Manu- kau Contact the general sec- retary Dr Nadeem Ahmad on 021-2422-393 or email ophth firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to RSVP. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a religious organisation acknowledged worldwide for its efforts to promote peace.
