The Worldwide Head and Caliph of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, His Holiness, Mirza Masroor Ahmad has condemned the oppression of women accross the world saying Islam is vehemently opposed to the oppression of the female folk in all ramifications.

Masroor Ahmad stated this while addressing no fewer than 15,000 Muslim women from over 100 countries during the three-day United Kingdom’s largest Islamic convention held at the women’s marquee, Hadeeqatul Mahdi (Oakland Farm), Green Street, East Worldham, Alton, Hampshire, London last Saturday.

The international convention, known as the JalsaSalana, designed to promote the peaceful teachings of Islam, the convention was aimed at  countering extremists’ views and misinterpretations about Islam.

Hazrat Masroor Ahmad has repeatedly spoken out against all forms of extremism and condemned the oppression of women in any form, particularly in the name of Islam.

32 year old Saadiyya Khan, one of the female organisers of the event said: “Muslim groups, both extremist and apparently moderate, marginalise or situate Muslim women on the fringes of their faith. However, we take great strength and pride from the fact that we are able to prepare such a large gathering and welcome our Caliph to address us on issues of particular religious importance to women.

“Our hearts bleed for women who are radicalised and sometimes lured to join terrorist groups like Isis abroad. With the support and guidance of our Caliph, we are working hard to eradicate the oppression of women and to help realise the rights all women must be entitled to, such as access to education, dignity and respect.”

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (AMC) was established in 1889 and is led by the single largest caliphate in the world. The AMC has campaigned against extreme interpretations of Islam for more than a century. The Muslim community has established lasting humanitarian institutions that have saved hundreds of thousands of lives.
