Caliph calls for Muslims to reject extremism and terrorism as UK Islamic convention concludes

THE Caliph to tens of millions of Ahmadi Muslims concluded the largest Islamic convention in the UK with a condemnation of all forms of extremism and terrorism. More than 30,000 members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (AMC) from over 100 countries gathered at the Jalsa Salana event, which took place on a 200 acre farm in Hampshire. On Sunday, 30 July 2017, His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad, delivered the concluding address of the Jalsa.  During the event, His Holiness spoke about the rise of extremism and continued instability in the world. He called for Muslims to return to the true teachings of Islam.

His Holiness, Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:- "It is up to Muslims to stand up and reject all forms of extremism and terrorism. It is the task of Ahmadi Muslims to show the true teachings of Islam which are of peace love, mercy and compassion."

The Jalsa began on Friday, with the traditional Friday Sermon and the raising of the black and white flag of the AMC alongside the Union Flag. On Saturday, the Caliph conducted proceedings from the ladies marquee where 15,000 Muslim women witnessed His Holiness award prizes to women for academic achievements and deliver a speech on the rights and empowerment Islam affords them. His Holiness delivered 5 speeches over the course of the weekend. The purpose of the 3 day international gathering is to promote the true, peaceful teachings of Islam and challenge misinterpretations around the world's 2nd largest religion. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community was established in 1889, in India, and is led by a spiritual caliphate, with tens of millions of adherents.

Latest flood defence technology delivered to residents

FLOODING and coastal erosion can have devastating impacts on our local communities with more than 5.5 million or 1 in 6 homes in England are at risk of flooding.  Wirral Council, alongside United Utilities and the Environment Agency, have been looking into a series of solutions to help reduce the impact of flooding when an area is hit with heavy rainfall.  With 1 off funding from the Regional Flood and Coastal Committee, the Council has bought a stock of the latest technology in flood defences called Hydrosacks, which will be distributed to residents that have reported flooding at their property in the past.  The Hydrosacks are light and portable and can be stored away easily until they are needed. They inflate upon contact with water to form a temporary barrier in doorways.

Cllr Phillip Brightmore, Cabinet member for Environment, said:- "Hydrosacks are a really useful way of reducing flood damage to your property, but the onus is still on residents to ensure that you are prepared for a flooding event in the future. If you live in a flood risk area, make sure that you sign up for flood alerts to ensure that you can react to a flood as quickly as possible. Completing a flood plan will also help you to be prepared and reduce flood damage to your property and your community. Don't wait until it happens; you may not have time."

The Environment Agency publishes online flood maps for areas near a water source. To find out if you are at risk of flooding or would like to sign up for flood warnings you can go to the Agency's website. Alternatively, you can also call the Floodline for advice on:- 0345 988 1188.   If you would like to learn more about how you can ensure you are prepared for a flooding event in the future visit the Wirral Council website.
