PAN-AFRICAN MUSLIM GROUP TO ADDRESS RACISM AND INJUSTICE

PRESS RELEASE
 
• Solidarity event on Friday 19th June
• Members to promote the Supremacy of Justice
• Movement seeks unity and strength through faith
 
Members of a Pan-African movement in the UK are to unite in solidarity against ‘unspeakable crimes committed against humanity’ which seems to continue unabated.
 
Coming together on a platform of ‘Love for All, Hatred for None’ the movement seeks to strengthen resolve in faith as a means of tackling racism and injustice.
 
The Pan-African Ahmadiyya Muslim Association (PAAMA) UK’s Virtual Solidarity Event on the theme, ‘Challenging Racism and Injustice’, is taking place at 7pm on Friday 19th June 2020.
 
In the wake of mass unrest in recent weeks, PAAMA believes that coming together will not only be cathartic for members in discussing issues of racism but empowering in highlighting how faith offers a solution.
 
Mr Tommy Kallon, President PAAMA UK, said:
 
“The marginalisation and systemic discrimination of certain sections of society necessitates an urgent conversation to challenge racism, hatred and injustice. We are coming together to share, inform and empower. We campaign for absolute justice for every human being regardless of race, ethnicity, culture or creed. The Association is recognised for highlighting Islam’s teachings on racial equality.
 
“The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has endured persecution in parts of the Muslim world so we recognise that it is only through absolute justice can nations achieve everlasting peace.”
 
Mr Kallon added that through faith members can enlighten themselves about the concept of equality of mankind. He said: “The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) declared that ‘mankind are from the same God and the same ancestor. An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor does a non-Arab have any superiority over an Arab; a white has no superiority over a black nor has a black any superiority over a white, except by righteousness and good conduct.'”
