UK Muslim Brotherhood Group: 'We Won't Kill Them, But Ahmadis Aren't Muslims'
by Donna Rachel Edmunds
The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) has released a statement condemning attacks on Ahmadi Muslims, but also announcing that, in its view, Ahmadis are kuffar (non-believers) who the Quran says are destined for "doom and degradation" after death.
Despite the denunciation of violence, the statement may leave the door open for further persecution of Ahmadiyya in Britain and beyond.
The press release follows the murder of Ahmadi Muslim Asad Shah, a shopkeeper in Glasgow who was brutally stabbed and stamped to death outside his shop just hours after wishing his Christian customers a "Happy Easter". The Ahmadi motto is "Love for All, Hatred for None," a message that Mr Shah was well known for spreading via the internet.
