The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada is proud to launch its fifth annual “Muslims for Remembrance Day” campaign. This nationwide campaign was first launched in 2011 to remember and show support for the sacrifices of Canada’s armed forces. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at will again show its support for Canada’s troops and veterans that sacrificed their lives for this country and for those who are protecting us today. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at has become the leading Muslim organization to showcase support for Canadian veterans through this annual campaign.
For the fifth consecutive year, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada will be rallying young and old across the country to raise funds for Canadian veterans and show its support for this great country.
This year, “Muslims for Remembrance Day” will be celebrated in several cities across Canada. Donations will be collected and poppies will be handed out at all Canadian chapters of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at. All collections will be donated to The Royal Canadian Legion.
“We feel honored to live in this country and as such we feel that it is our duty as loyal citizens to remember the brave soldiers who made and make the ultimate sacrifice” said Lal Khan Malik, National President of The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Canada.
About the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at:
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at is a dynamic, fast-growing international revival movement within Islam. Founded in 1889, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community spans over 200 countries with membership exceeding tens of millions. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at is the only Islamic organization to believe that the long-awaited messiah has come in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) of Qadian, India. The Community believes that God sent Ahmad, like Jesus, to end religious wars, condemn bloodshed and reinstitute morality, justice and peace.
