A GROUP of Halesowen Muslims will be holding an exhibition in Belbroughton this weekend to promote a message of peace and counter extremist rhetoric.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community will be running the event, featuring displays promoting peace and translated excerpts of Quranic verses along with other literature, at Belbroughton Recreation Centre, Hartle Lane, Belbroughton, on Saturday April 14 from 11am to 1pm.

Mubashir Nadeem, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim elders association, said: “As a Muslim community, we believe it is our duty to serve this country and to stop extremism, particularly in the name of Islam, which teaches us peace, loyalty, freedom, equality, respect and love for all.

“I would like to take this opportunity to invite all residents Belbroughton to join us on Saturday."

The event, part of the group's continuing United Against Extremism campaign, will start with a presentation about the history of the UK’s Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, one of Britain’s oldest Muslim communities which was founded over a century ago and whose motto is love for all, hatred for none.

Refreshments will be served at the event.
