London, Aug 1 The head of millions of Ahmadiyya Muslims concluded the largest Islamic convention in the UK with a call to reject all forms of extremism and terrorism.

More than 30,000 members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (AMC) from over 100 countries gathered at the "Jalsa Salana" annual event recently, which took place on a 200-acre farm in Hampshire on the southern coast of England.

"It is up to Muslims to stand up and reject all forms of extremism and terrorism. It is the task of Ahmadi Muslims to show the true teachings of Islam which are of peace love, mercy and compassion," said Mirza Masroor Ahmad at the conclusion of the event on Sunday.

The event began on Friday with the traditional Friday Sermon and the raising of the black and white flag of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community alongside the flag of the United Kingdom.

On Saturday, the Caliph conducted proceedings from the ladies' marquee where 15,000 Muslim women gathered for a speech on women's rights and empowerment under Islam and an award ceremony for academic achievements.

The group said that the purpose of the three-day international gathering was to promote the "true, peaceful teachings of Islam" and challenge misinterpretations around the world's second-largest religion.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community was established in 1889 in India and is led by a spiritual caliphate.
