In a highly disturbing and provocative act, the leader of the PVV Party in Holland, Mr Geert Wilders, recently escalated his campaign against Islam by placing a crude and grotesque sticker on the door of his parliamentary office. The sticker disfigured the Saudi Arabian flag to insult Islam, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the Holy Quran. Mr Wilders has widely publicised this latest attack on Islam.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat condemns this act by Geert Wilders in the strongest possible terms. Such a move can only hurt the sentiments of millions of innocent and peace loving Muslims across the world.
It is held that no sane person could ever countenance conducting such a sustained and unjust campaign of abuse as Mr Wilders has over the past few years and as such the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat leaves the case of Geert Wilders in the Hands of God.
In response to Mr Wilders’ latest actions, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat and Fifth Khalifa, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad has said:
“The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat utterly condemns this latest attack on Islam by the Dutch politician Mr Geert Wilders. At a time when the world is crying out for peace, such provocative acts can only further destabilise the world and destroy its peace and harmony.
“We Ahmadi Muslims constantly call for peace, justice and tolerance at all levels of society and as such I reiterate that today’s world is in grave danger and so all people should work towards fostering a society based on love, compassion and mutual respect. All parties should work towards ending all forms of hatred and should openly condemn any statements or acts that can cause pain and suffering.”
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat expresses its gratitude to leading figures of the Government of Holland, including the Deputy Prime Minister and the Foreign Minister, for publicly expressing their condemnation of Mr Wilders’ latest act.
