Online PR News – 18-November-2015 – Helsinki, Finland – Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and all those affected by this evil and outrageous attack. We would like to offer our heartfelt sympathies and condolences to all those who have been left bereaved.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Finland mourns the loss of life and expresses its deepest condolences to the families of the victims. The community is saddened to learn that more than 100 people have been killed, with many more are still in critical condition.
The Holy Quran in fact champions the sanctity of human life and states:
"...whosoever killed a person, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind; and who so gave life to one, it shall be as if he had given life to all mankind." (5:33)
"These terrorists and extremists have hijacked the religion of Islam - the religion of peace - for their personal agenda and interests through committing vicious atrocities. In reality, Islam does not approve of disorder in any form. Islam is far from teaching terrorism. It teaches rule of law, obedience to the authorities and does not let anyone take the law in his own hands, comments, Ataul Ghalib.
The Holy Quran clearly states:
"Those who create disorder in the earth, they are the real losers"; "and commit not iniquity in the earth, creating disorder"; "and Allah loves not disorder".
"Islam categorically rejects and condemns every form of terrorism. It does not provide any cover or justification for any act of violence, be it committed by an individual, group or government. I most strongly condemn all acts and form of terrorism because it is my deeply rooted belief that not only Islam but also no true religion, whatever its name, can sanction violence and bloodshed of innocent men, women and children in the name of God. God is love, God is peace!”
"We Ahmadi Muslims sympathise and love humanity and so wherever mankind suffers in any way it leaves us grieved and pained. We are highly grieved and disturbed at this attack. Our hearts are filled with love and compassion for them. We continue to spread the message of Love for All, Hatred for None.”

AHMADIYYA MUSLIM JAMAAT FINLAND
Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Finland is the promised revival of Islam, international in its composition which spans over 200 countries. This is the most dynamic denomination of Islam in modern history. Its current headquarters is in the United Kingdom.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Finland was established in 1889, by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (AS) in a small and remote village of Qadian, in Punjab, India. He claimed to be the expected reformer of the latter days, the awaited one for the world community of religions. The movement he started is a benevolent message of Islam – peace, universal brotherhood and submission to the will of God in its pristine purity. Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Finland is the leading Islamic organization to categorically reject terrorism in any form. The Movement was founded under Divine guidance to rejuvenate Islamic moral & spiritual values.
It encourages interfaith dialogue and diligently tries to correct misunderstandings about Islam. It advocates peace, tolerance and understanding among followers of different faiths. In doing so it has faced denial of basic human rights, targeted attacks, violent persecution extending to targeted killings and massacres. Still, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community continues to be an advocate for universal human rights and protections for religious and other minorities. It champions the empowerment and education of women. Its members are among the most law-abiding, educated, and engaged Muslims in the world.
