The venue has also grown from the historic Fazl Mosque in Southfields London, to the 22 acre ‘Islamabad’ site in Farnham, Surrey in the 1980s to the 200 acre site of Oakland Farm in Hampshire. This year more than 35,000 delegates from over 90 countries are expected to attend the 50th UK Jalsa, to increase religious knowledge and promote a sense of peace and tranquility. The event is broadcast live globally via satellite TV with simultaneous translation in up to 13 languages.
The Jalsa salana
Nestled in the Hampshire countryside, a special tented village is constructed for the Jalsa each year to house the main events and provide food, accommodation and a range of exhibitions and stalls for the attendees. The Jalsa has attracted a range of national and international guest speakers from all walks of life, including faith and civic leaders, Secretaries of State and royalty. Below is just a small selection of those who have spoken at the UK Jalsa.
