Today the media is pushing another false narrative to cover for the violent teachings of jihad. Relentless deception.
The press is touting this new Muslim loyalty pledge that was launched by a radical, heretical offshoot of Islam. The Ahmadiyya was founded in India at the end of the nineteenth century by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, who proclaimed himself to be the “Reformer of the age.” In Islam, any attempt to reform or reinterpret is the crime of "hypocrisy" and is punishable by death. Hypocrisy in Islam is more reviled and despised than apostasy (that in and of itself is almost impossible -- and apostasy is also punishable by death). Mirza was a heretic. The Ahmadis have never been accepted by mainline Islam.
The Ahmadiyya are a fraction of the ummah (worldwide Muslim community) and are despised by Islam. Members of the Ahmadiyya are the victims of systematic oppression, persecution and slaughter in Muslim countries. In other words, they are perceived to be non-believers or "hypocrites." So while this is a lovely idea, it is meaningless. It does not address jihad and the ideology that inspires Islamic imperialism, antisemitism and hatred for all non-Muslims. In Pakistan they are prohibited by law from self-identifying as Muslims.
Mirza Ghulam Ahmad founded the movement on 23 March 1889 and termed it the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama'at (community), envisioning it to be a revitalisation of Islam.
Ahmadiyya views on certain beliefs in Islam have been controversial to mainstream Muslims since the movement’s birth. Many mainstream Muslims do not consider Ahmadis to be Muslims, citing in particular the Ahmadiyya viewpoint on the death and return of Jesus (see Jesus in Islam), the Ahmadiyya concept of Jihad as peaceful and the community’s view of the finality of prophethood with particular reference to the interpretation of Qur'an 33:40. In several Islamic countries today Ahmadis have been marginalised by the majority religious community; severe persecution and often systematic oppression have led many Ahmadis to emigrate and settle elsewhere.
For the Ahmadiyyas to be presenting themselves as the voice of Islam is America (or anywhere) is deceiving. They do not speak for the ummah. The koranic text they cite below was abrogated (superseded) by later verses. They know that, but know that most Westerners don't.
Why We Launched a 'Muslims for Loyalty' Campaign This Week In the United States By Naseem Mahdi FOX News
Our country faces terrorism at home and abroad. While terrorism has no religion, American-Muslims must accept that negative forces are trying to influence American-Muslim youth to become terrorists, and, sadly, they are having some success.
The Holy Koran (55:61) teaches us that the recompense of goodness is nothing but goodness. Therefore, Muslims living in this great land, enjoying all its freedoms, liberties and benefits must take concrete actions to strengthen and foster peace in, and loyalty to, our homeland - America.
Islam teaches and requires that Muslims live as loyal citizens of the countries where they reside. The Holy Koran [4:60] declares: "O ye who believe! Obey God, and obey His Messenger and those who are in authority among you." Prophet Muhammad taught: Love of one’s country of residence is part of faith. Let it be known: Muslims who rebel against the rule of law invite the wrath of God, not His pleasure. The Holy Book of Islam, the Holy Quran (2:12-16), states that inciting rebellion, sowing sedition and creating disorder is a means of damnation, not salvation.
In this spirit, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA -- the oldest American-Islamic organization in history -- launched its new “Muslims for Loyalty” campaign this week. We have printed several hundred thousand "Muslims for Loyalty" fliers. We have purchased ad space on buses and the metro in the U.S. capital to convey the same message to our fellow Americans.
This is why on Tuesday hundreds of our members braved the bitter cold and handed out 100,000 "Muslims for Loyalty to the USA" fliers at 16 metro stations. This brochure firmly and clearly states that American-Muslims must be loyal to their homeland – the United States of America.
Our “Muslims for Loyalty” campaign intends to peacefully but forcefully convey to Americans that all such messages which encourage disloyalty to, or terrorism against, America contradict the teachings of Islam, the Holy Koran and Prophet Mohamed.
America has been asking for the proliferation of this message. This message of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community can defeat those extremist elements from within Islam who wish to exploit Islam for their own nefarious political ends.
