USA: Indianapolis Ahmadiyya Muslims Host 'Coffee, Cake, and True Islam' Events To Educate Hoosiers About Its Religion

Anti-Sharia law rallies were held around the country last weekend, including in Indianapolis. One Muslim group hopes its own regular events – called Coffee, Cake, and True Islam – might help educate Hoosiers about its religion.

Muzaffar Ahmad is an IT director in Indianapolis. But every Wednesday night he drives to a Panera restaurant in an Indianapolis suburb to meet with anyone interested in his religion.

“So these radical Islamic terrorists have totally abandoned the teachings of the Quran?” one of the attendees at the event asked. “Yes,” Ahmad replied.

Ahmad is a member of the small sect of Islam called Ahmadiyya. The group believes Islam is a religion of peace, and that extremists and terrorists claiming allegiance to the religion are not true Muslims.

Ahmad has run these meetings for six months. There are seven people at this week’s meeting, which he says is typical.

“That’s probably our biggest problem, is to reach out to people who we most desperately need to reach out to. It’s the people who don’t know any Muslim, have never talked to any Muslim, and some of them probably don’t want to talk to a Muslim.”

Ahmad says the rallies last weekend, where members from the group ACT for America warned that the traditional Islamic code called Sharia law could merge with the United States justice system, are worried about something that is legally impossible.

Another Ahmadiyya group meets every week in Kokomo.
