Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Canada went out to create a world record with the help of Atfal, Khuddam and Ansar . On Saturday July 16th 2011 around 3,000 people gathered at Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area in Whitchurch-Stouffville.
The community condemns war and promotes peace.
“What better way to promote peace than to make a smiley face,” said Rizwan Rabbani, event co-ordinator and director of the association.
The previous Guinness World Record attempt for a human-made smiley face was made by New Jersey’s Mahwah Police Department June 30. It had 2,226 people. Guinness officials are still processing the record-breaking attempt.
This record-breaking smiley-face was part of the Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya of Canada’s annual convention.
