On 11 October 2022, a two-member delegation from Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Sri Lanka visited the Ministry of Mass Media in Colombo. The ministry officials welcomed the delegation and arranged a meeting with Hon. Bandula Gunawardena, Minister of Mass Media.
Before the presentation of the Holy Quran’s Sinhala translation to the minister, the delegation briefed about Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya and showed pictures of the Promised Messiahas and Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa. The delegation also explained about the Ahmadiyya Peace Award to promote peace.
The minister was delighted and respectfully accepted the Holy Quran with Sinhala translation and the Sinhala translation of the books, Life of Muhammad and World Crisis and the Pathway To Peace.
In regards to the book, World Crisis and the Pathway to Peace, the minister said, “Peace is very important and I will read it.”
Mrs Deepani, the Coordinative Secretary to the Minister, showed much interest in these matters and requested this literature for her as well, which was then gifted to her by the delegation.
