The international leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad (Hudhur) said that although the community in Holland is small, it should realise its responsibility. The objective is not fulfilled by a few people doing the work. The unfortunate person who has been using unrestrained, brazen stance against Islam and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) to further his political life is indeed also from Holland. So much so that he froths at the mouth at the name of Islam. Recently when a Muslim organisation strongly condemned terrorism, this cruel person, Geert Wilders, said it was not sufficient. It was not acceptable for him until it was said that Islam is a religion that incites violence and extremism, is false and is not from God and it should be wiped off the face of the earth.
Addressing Geert Wilders Hudhur said, ‘O’ cruel person, let it be known that you, your [political] party and every person like you will perish but the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) and Islam came to be in this world until the Day of Judgement. Any worldly power, no matter how Pharaoh-like in its enmity against Islam it may be, cannot erase Islam.’
Hudhur added that God has commissioned that person in this age whose task is, in spite of the animosity of people like Wilders, to make Islam triumph in the world with God’s help. Each Ahmadi has taken the Bai’at of the one commissioned by God and is aware of and pledges to sacrifice life, property and time to attain the objective. Thus is the message, Hudhur said, that the Jama’at in Holland and Ahmadis all over the world needs to take to others. Even if this politician [Wilders], worst enemy of Islam, is gaining further seats in the parliament, the world should be informed that his antics will lead to destruction by the hand of God. God has always protected and honoured His Prophets and will InshaAllah do so today. We neither possess any power, nor will we employ any worldly ploy. However, prayers of those whose hearts are injured shake the heavens. Here, the matter is to do with the beloved of God, (peace and blessings of Allah be on him). Here, God’s sense of honour will demonstrate that even the dust particles of such petty people will not be found.
Hudhur said there are many decent people in Holland who do not accept his views and that is the reason this wretched person was taken to court but it appears that court case became a casualty of politics. Hudhur said decent people should be searched and the message of Islam should be taken to them. People who are sensitive about others’ feelings should be gathered and a peace campaign should be launched. The world should be told that Islam teaches to even care for the feelings of idolaters and teaches against abuse of their idols lest they are abusive about God and as a result disorder is created.
Efforts should be strengthened and it should be remembered that no task of ours is undertaken without prayer. Hudhur said prayers should also be made for the Dutch Queen. She has met opposition because she is against anti-Islamic stance and speaks of being mindful of others’ sentiments. Indeed, Muslims are enjoined to return favour with favour. May each scheme against the Dutch Queen meet failure and may God open up the Queen’s heart and the hearts of people of Holland about Islam.
