Introducing the Sinhala Translation of the book World Crisis and the Pathway To Peace – A compilation of addresses in various Parliaments by His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, May Allah Strengthen his hands, it was told about the tireless efforts being made by the Khalifa and the Ahmadiyya worldwide leader, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, by spreading the true teachings of Islam through various means, particularly addressing lawmakers at Capitol Hill, EU Parliament, UK Parliament, Ireland Parliament, New Zealand Parliament, Dutch Parliament, Canada Parliament and so on so forth.

On hearing these, Minister showed interest to see the photo of Ahmadiyya Khlaifa and said, I will write letter to your Khalifa seeking his valuable support for the poverty stricken people in certain part of the Island, particularly in his constituency (Tangalle area) and added that these poor people are direly in need of basic things of human being. Minister went on to say, showing sympathy on human being, is a source of attaining sympathy of God.
