The Malta Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has condemned the attacks in Egypt when bombings struck Coptic Christian churches on Palm Sunday.
...
The death toll rose to at least 49 Monday, state media reported. At least 27 people died in a blast inside a church in the northern city of Tanta, and 78 people were injured, according to Egypt's state-run news agency Al-Ahram. In Alexandria, 18 civilians and four police officers were killed when a suicide bomber blew himself up outside a Coptic church.

Laiq Ahmed Atif, the leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Malta condemned the attacks.

“Undoubtedly, these are inhuman, heinous and cruel attacks. The Ahmadiyya Community condemns the attacks in strongest terms. The Community also demands that the sate should provide full protection and security to all the citizens living in the country irrespective of their colour, creed, politics and faith; and particularly the rights of all the minorities should be protected and safeguarded fully by the state,” Laiq Ahmed Atif, the community’s president said.

Ahmadiyya said it believed in freedom of faith and that it rejected any kind of violence and force.

“The Community believes in the Quranic Teachings that ‘there is no compulsion in religion’ and condemns the use of force in the matters of faith, or in the name of religion.

“We, the members of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat express our deepest condolences to the victims’ families in this difficult time and pray for the health of those who were injured in these attacks. We believe that there is a crucial need to combat any aggression based on religious or political differences.”
