Later on, the delegation was given a brief overview of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya and its history in Denmark. Thereafter, the guests were taken into the prayer hall where Jamaat books, placards and pamphlets were displayed in the Danish language.
A brief and comprehensive lecture was given to the delegation with questions and answers following the speech.
