Conference organised by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community addresses key issue of our time

London, United Kingdom: For more than 30 years an Islamic Caliphate has existed and operated in London as the worldwide lead for an Islamic community – The Ahmadiyya Muslims.

Now, the community is addressing the issue of Caliphate in the 21st Century with an event at Kensington Conference Centre on 23 May.

It will address what is meant by Caliphate and how can it be relevant to this age.

Among the speakers will be:
  • Dr Yohanan Friedmann, Professor Emeritus of Islamic Studies, Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is also a member of the Israel Academy of Science and Humanities. He has written extensively on Islamic matters including Tolerance and Coercion in Islam.
  • Ayyaz Mahmood Khan, Scholar of Comparative Religion, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community

Ibrahim Ikhlaf of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community said:
“Given the developments in the Islamic world and the spread of extremism, it’s time for a conference to be held to discuss the true nature of Caliphate and its aspirations in the 21st century.
“Caliphate evokes many different feelings such as devotion, leadership and unity on the one hand, and intolerance, extremism and aggression on the other hand.
“The results of a survey specifically commissioned by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community on British attitudes to Caliphate will be shared at the Conference.
“The conference is an opportunity for an in depth understanding of Caliphate in Islam and in particular to examine how this concept can be applied in today's age.”

Date:    Monday 23rd May 2016
Venue: The Great Hall, Kensington Conference Centre, Hornton Street, London W8 7NX
