Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Norway held its 8th annual Peace Conference at the Baitul Nasr Mosque in Oslo, Norway on 18 April 2024, titled “World Crisis and the Pathway to Peace”, which was moderated by General Secretary Jamaat Norway, Syed Shan Ahmed Sahib.

The formal event commenced with the recitation from the Holy Quran, followed by a speech by Naib Amir and Missionary-in-Charge, Musawar Ahmad Shahkar Sahib, who introduced the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, Promised Messiahas, and Khilafat-e-Ahmadiyya.

After the introduction, a video clip was shown featuring Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa, highlighting some excerpts from his addresses at the 2023 and 2024 annual Peace Symposiums, where he emphasised that for many years, the world has been threatened by devastating wars, and the only way to prevent this destruction is to establish peace worldwide.

This was followed by a speech by the Mayor of Oslo, Anne Lindboe, who thanked the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat for inviting her to the event. She highly appreciated the Peace Conference which carries the slogan “Love for All, Hatred for None.”

Another speech was delivered by the Deputy President of a political party, Marian Hussain, mentioning that while there are rules for war, Israel is not abiding by those rules, resulting in the loss of innocent lives. She praised the efforts of the Jamaat in addressing the world’s issues and advocating for peace for many years.

The President of Humanity First Norway, Michael Majid Khokhar Sahib, presented a report on a school project in Niger, showing images of barren land being made cultivable and mentioning clean water, fruits, various medicines, and toys for children.

The next speech was given by Nancy Herz, who emphasised that according to the current theme, we should search for solutions to the world’s issues and find the path to peace.

The concluding speech was delivered by Amir Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Norway, Zahoor Ahmad Chaudhry Sahib. He quoted the teachings of the Holy Quran that in a conflict between two parties, a third party should mediate and justice should prevail.

This was followed by a silent prayer and meal for the guests. The event was attended by more than 200 people, including 90 guests.
