BRITAIN’S oldest established Muslim group, the Ahmadiyya Community, is holding its annual convention this week in Hampshire, with Hillingdon well represented.

The faith gathering is restricted to primarily UK delegates only, owing to the ongoing pandemic.  

It will be led by the world head of the Ahmadiyya Muslims, Hazrat Mirza Masroor, and the proceedings will be televised globally.

The convention will touch on a range of topics, from justice in international affairs to guidance on harmony in the home.

Naeem Udin, President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Hayes, said: “These last two years were unprecedented times for our nation.

“Ahmadi Muslims in Hillingdon are pleased to again be attending, to pledge loyalty to one’s nation and to renew our efforts to serve humanity.”

An estimated 30,000 men and women from across the UK will attend over the three days.
