There is no better example than the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community which is led by Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad. Recently, Ahmad went to the Dutch Parliament explaining ways that both the West and Muslim-majority governments can fight terrorism. He said, “a person does not have the right to claim he understands what another person believes in better than they do.” Ahmad has been to various bodies of government around the world and is fighting for nothing but peace. We cannot lose hope. The terrorists will be stopped. However, we must also recognize that the majority of Muslims are peace-loving people.
