His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih V, is the fifth successor of the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him). His benevolent leadership provides the community with unity, guidance and direction, ensuring that it remains devoted to God and to the service of mankind.
His Holiness frequently meets with parliamentarians and heads of state and has delivered keynote addresses at the United States Congress, the European Parliament, the UK Houses of Parliament, the Dutch Parliament and the Conference of World Religions in London.
His Holiness has also condemned all acts of extremism. At the 2017 National Peace Symposium UK, His Holiness stated:
“Islam is that religion which has forever enshrined the universal principles of freedom of religion, freedom of conscience and freedom of belief. Therefore, if today there are so-called Muslim groups or sects that are killing people, it can only be condemned in the strongest possible terms. Their barbaric acts are a complete violation of everything that Islam stands for.”
Following the terror incident in Manchester on 22 May 2017, His Holiness in his Friday Sermon of 26 May stated:
“…22 innocent people, including young children were brutally and senselessly murdered in Manchester. This was an utterly barbaric act and such heinous acts are completely opposed to the teachings of Islam. As Muslims, we are devastated and grief-stricken by this attack and condemn it in the strongest possible terms. May Allah have mercy upon all the victims and those that have been left bereaved and may the cruelties of those people who are carrying out these atrocities in the name of Islam come to an end.”
