The Columbus Chapter of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community recently held an interfaith meeting at its Nasir mosque in Groveport to discuss the Innocence of Muslims film clips that mocked the Islamic prophet Mohammed and sparked riots in Muslim countries last month.

Speakers “denounced the abhorrent movie as well as the violent protests by extremist groups around the world,” said  Sohaib Awan of Pickerington, a member of the community.

Those gathered heard a passage from the Quran referring to Mohammed as “mercy for all mankind” and sayings attributed to the prophet, revealing his “noble character” and traits of “simplicity, generosity and mercy,” Awan said in a report on the meeting.

Presentations were given on the life of Mohammed, similarities between Jews, Christians and Muslims; the need to treat one another as equals; and Mohammed’s “response of patience and peace,” not punishment, against those who blasphemed him in life, Awan added.

Among those speaking were embers of the Ahmadiyya community; a Sunni Muslim; the son of a Christian pastor from Pakistan; and a pastor from a Unitarian Church.

Worthington Mayor Harvey Minton also attended and spoke on the separation of church and state, freedom of speech, slander and libel.
