I don’t know if any of you saw the Sunday Herald, (my work gets the Herald as it minimises food spills on the tables in the tearoom I suspect) and in it was an advert by a Muslim group called Muslims for Peace protesting against ISIS and Extremism in general. (It was headed Eradicating Extremism in big capital letters)
So there ARE “Good Muslims”, and I thought their message deserved wider circulation than the sad little rag it was in. They seem to be in favour of equal rights for women, no compulsion of religion, and probably also not throwing gays off parking buildings or stoning them.
They are Ahmadiyya Muslims, a subset of Islam. Unfortunately they are rejected as kafirs or heretics by mainstream Islam (too peaceful perhaps) and are actively persecuted in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Bangladesh and other majority Muslim countries, actually being defined officially as not Muslim in some
I wish them all the best and hope they spread their anti terrorism message further. I’d be happy to see them stay and I’d say they will assimilate far better than most
