Canada: Islam comes knocking in bid to promote harmony


“Islam is a religion of peace. We are coming to promote religious harmony. We are not coming to convert. We can’t convert anybody. We don’t want to convert anybody. We want to promote harmony and understanding. We have no agenda to covert you.”

Members of a Muslim youth group will knock on doors in Kingston on Wednesday as part of a campaign to promote religious harmony and understanding.
Kingston will follow a stop in in Simcoe on Tuesday, where nearly a dozen members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association of Canada will rise at 3:45 a.m. and say a prayer for Simcoe before heading to the town.
According to Rizwan Rabbani, executive director of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the youths will pray for the well-being of Simconians, the betterment of the town, and peace and harmony among religious faiths. The youths will also “pray that everyone becomes a believer of their faith.”
While in Simcoe, the youths will hand out literature that seeks to dispel some of the myths and misconceptions that have arisen around the Islamic faith in recent years. The Islamic holy book, the Koran, will be handed out free to anyone who wants one.
“Islam is a religion of peace,” Rabbani said. “We are coming to promote religious harmony. We are not coming to convert. We can’t convert anybody. We don’t want to convert anybody. We want to promote harmony and understanding. We have no agenda to covert you.”
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is in the midst of a nationwide outreach program to non-Muslims. A key part of this campaign, according to AMC literature, is “condemning terrorism.” Over the past 14 months, nearly 2,700 AMC volunteers have visited more than 337,300 homes in more than 200 communities in Canada.
Youth volunteers canvassed St. Thomas on Friday and Beamsville on Sunday. Lindsay was on deck Monday while the Limestone City is scheduled for Wednesday. Cambridge is up May 31.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a non-profit charitable organization with branches around the world. It has 65 chapters in Canada.
