On 21 December 2023, Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Kosovo welcomed Mr Christian Böttcher, the First Secretary of the German Embassy in Kosovo, responsible for Culture, Press, and Religion. The meeting was held at the Jamaat’s centre in Prishtina.

Mr Böttcher began by sharing insights into his activities in Kosovo, setting the stage for an exchange of information. In a concise presentation, he was briefed on the religious and cultural initiatives undertaken by the Jamaat in Kosovo across its branches in Prishtina, Peja, and Mitrovica. A highlight of the gathering was the screening of a brief report on the Jalsa Salana Germany 2023, in which a Kosovo delegation participated, sparking Mr Böttcher’s interest in attending the Jalsa Salana Kosovo in the coming year.

Under the theme “Love for All, Hatred for None”, Mr Böttcher lauded the Jamaat’s global efforts towards fostering peace, brotherhood, love, harmony, and interfaith dialogue. The meeting also shed light on the humanitarian projects of Humanity First, with approximately 80 successful ventures in Kosovo since 2018. These initiatives, spanning health, education, and social welfare, demonstrated effective collaboration with municipal directorates and other civil society organisations.

As the meeting concluded, both parties expressed a shared commitment to future collaboration in the cultural, humanitarian, and interreligious dialogue realms. In a gesture of appreciation, Mr Christian Böttcher received a copy of the Holy Quran with German translation and the Promised Messiah’sas book, The Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam.
