The Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam is a religious organization, international in its scope, with established branches in more than 178 countries worldwide. This is the most dynamic denomination of Islam in modern history.
The Ahmadiyya Movement was established in 1889 by Hazarat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835 - 1908) in a small and remote village, Qadian, in the Punjab, India. He claimed to be the expected divine reformer of the latter days, the Awaited One of the world community of religions.
The Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam was created under divine guidance with the objective to rejuvenate Islamic moral and spiritual values. It encourages interfaith dialogue, and diligently tries to correct misunderstandings about Islam in the West. It advocates peace, tolerance, love and understanding among followers of different faiths. It firmly believes in and acts upon the Qur'anic teaching:
"There is no compulsion in religion".
It strongly rejects violence and terrorism in any form and for any reason.
