The Peace Symposium is a key event of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat held at the largest mosque in Western Europe and marks the sixteenth to date.
The event promotes a deeper understanding of Islam and other faiths and seeks to inspire a concerted effort for lasting peace.
The theme for this year’s Peace Symposium, which will be held this Saturday, 9 March, is The Critical Need for Peace. The keynote address will be delivered by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa and there may be other faith leaders and dignitaries speaking. Huzoor’s address will be streamed live on www.mta.tv.
The 2018 Peace Prize was awarded to Dr Fred Mednick, Founder of Teachers Without Borders. More than 800 guests attend the unique event including secretaries of state, parliamentarians, diplomats, faith and civic leaders and representatives from numerous charities and faith communities.
Guests will also get an opportunity to be given a guided tour of the mosque complex alongside interacting with hosts and understanding the truth about Islam. There will also be an exciting exhibition for guests highlighting the key works of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community along with a press conference with Hazrat Khalifatul Masihaa.
