On 27th September 2016, God gave another great opportunity to present Islam and the teachings of AAIIL to a large group of people from many part of the world.

The group was headed by Daniel Pipes, President of Middle East Forum, Pennsylvania, USA. Participants were from USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, UK and other countries.The group is on a fact finding tour to Europe. I was asked to give a presentation about Islam, AAIIL and the Mosque in English. It created so much interest that programme lasted from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. The programme was organized by Dr. Clemens, Director of The Berlin International Center for the Study of Antisemitism. Participants included PhD and human rights activists. A Pakistani lady, who is President of Council for Muslims facing tomorrow in Canada, was surprised to know about AAIIL as she had no idea about Lahori Jamaat.

During my presentation leader of the group stood up and explained that AAIIL is the group which is hope of the Western World. He told them that USA Organization by Elijah Muhammad and Farahkhan were actually off shoot of AAIIL. At that I also explained facts about the late Muhammad Ali boxer . He appreciated our ideology as a solution against Fundamentalism.

All participant took notes and took photo of each slide of the presentation. I specially mentioned Hazrat Mirza sahib’s book English Govt and Jihad and explained our view. It is all due to the enchanting teachings of Hazrat Mirza sahib that every one was satisfied and appreciated our Motto.
