Ahmadiyya Muslim community's Mangalore Chapter in Karnataka, India, organized a faith outreach event to propagate the peaceful message of Islam-Ahmadiyya in Udupi, a costal city, 65 kilometers from Mangalore, and in Manipal, a suburb within the city of Udupi.

On February 19, 2017, a team of ten volunteers, under the leadership of their local president, Muhammad Yusuf, were joined by vice president B.S. Abdurrahim; Ahmadiyya Imam, Molvi Asif Ahmad Khadim; and the youth leader, M. Abdus Salam from the Mangalore Mosque in the leafleting project.

The volunteers distributed more than 700 leaflets and pamphlets to the general public at the two locations.

Ahmadiyya, a reformist sect of Islam, was founded in 1889 by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian in Punjab, India. Hazarat Ahmad, who claimed to be the promised reformer awaited by many religions in the latter days, rejected the prevailing notion among Muslims that sword is needed to wage a jihad against non-Muslims. Hazrat Ahmad preached a Jihad of ideas with the help of a pen.

Ahmadiyya doctrine rejects violence in all forms and promotes a peaceful existence according to the laws of the land wherever people happen to live.
