Ahmadiyya Muslims in Leamington have condemned the attack in Paris by suspect al-Qaida gunmen which left 12 people dead yesterday (Tuesday).

The attack happened at the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which has been subjected to violent attacks in the past following its publication of cartoons of the prophet Muhammad.

As a result Mohammed Salim JP, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association in Leamington, has published a video made by a fellow member which speaks out against the attack.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Association says that since its inception in 1889 by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, it has always taught the ‘true message of Islam’ - which is of “peace and love”.

The Association will also be holding a function to promote the true peaceful values of Islam later this month entitled ‘How to Achieve Peace in the World’.
