Ahmadiyya Muslims call for Peace at Britain’s largest Muslim convention

HAMPSHIRE, England – Education is the key to breaking the influence that media-savvy, violent extremists have on young, disaffected Muslims, the leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (AMC) believes. Security officials estimate up to 700 people have left Britain to become involved with extremist groups such as the Islamic State (IS). About half have returned. At least 43 women and girls have fled to Syria in the past year.
