A three member delegation from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Sri Lanka (AMJSL) comprising Mr. A. Abdul Aziz, Press Secretary and National Director Faith Outreach – AMJSL, Moulavi A.B. Musthaq Ahmad – Chief Missionary (AMJSL), and Mr. I. Shakeel Ahmad (Photographer) visited to Ministry of Prison Reforms, Rehabilitation, Resettlement and Hindu Religious Affairs recently (21/03/2018).

Ministry Officials welcomed the delegation and arranged to meet Hon. D.M. Swaminathan, Minister of Prison Reforms, Rehabilitation, Resettlement and Hindu Religious Affairs.

Prior to the presentation of the Holy Qur’an Sinhala Translation to the Minister, Jama’at delegation briefed about Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and said that this is the only Community in Islam which has Spiritual Leadership (Khalifa) established by God and termed as ““ONE COMMUNITY – ONE LEADER’.

As the Minister showed much interest about the history of Ahmadiyyath, the delegation took this opportunity and continued to say more details about the Jama’at and the claims of Promised Messiah, peace be on him.

The delegation further pointed out the claim of Promised Messiah, peace be on him, by quoting the foretold of Sri Krishna in Bagavath Geetha and said Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, peace be on him claimed as Kaliygha Avadhar in parallel of foretold of Sri Krishna, peace be on him.

Moreover, Minister was recalled the address of Moulana Molavi Muhammad Umar H.A. (from Kerala, India) delivered in 1994 at Ramakridhna Hall Colombo. In this particular address, Moulavi Umar Sahib put forward quotations from Bagavath Geetha in Sanskrit language about the foretold and teachings of Sri Krishna on the advent of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), further explained.

It was well observed that the Minister had a thought about us having link with Saudi Arabia like other Muslims and has strong financial aid from them, that’s why these people are doing such activities in translating Qur’an. On this, Jama’at delegation explained the sacrifice being done by members of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in various aspects.

Hon. Minister spent much time to have conversation with the Jama’at delegation and Holy Qur’an Sinhala Translation as well as the Sinhala Translation of the book World Crisis and the Pathway To Peace were presented to the Minister. The Tamil Translation of the book: ‘Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam’  - also included in the gift to the Minister.

The Jama’at delegation also visited to the Ministry of Megapolis and Western Development and met Hon. Patali Champika Ranawaka, Minister of Megapolis and Western Development.

Prior to the presentation of the Holy Qur’an Sinhala Translation to the Minister, Jama’at delegation briefed about Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and said that this is the only Community in Islam which has Spiritual Leadership (Khalifa) established by God and termed as ““ONE COMMUNITY – ONE LEADER’.  Thus it was cleared to the Minister that we are not under All Ceylon Jammiyathul Ulema, when he raised a question on this.

Minister said, he was very much pleased to have such a wonderful book and expressed his thanks to the delegation.

Holy Qur’an Sinhala Translation as well as the Sinhala Translation of the book World Crisis and the Pathway To Peace were presented to the Minister.
