Before any EDL-ers, or the inhabitants of Walsall, get too excited about the news that some Muslims have ‘objected’ to the disused warehouse being turned into ‘an Islamic place of worship’ - think about this. The scheme was put forward by Walsall’s Ahmadiyya Muslim Association. Now most people have heard of Sunni and Shiite Muslims, but not this group. Who are they? Well, let’s get straight to the point. We all know that all Sunnis hate all Shiites. We know that all Shiites hate all Sunnis. However, all Muslims, including both Sunni and Shiites, hate the Ahmadiyyas with 'a perfect hate'. They are regarded as ‘apostates’, 'heretics' and worse by Muslims. Indeed Muslims do not even see them as Islamic or Muslim at all. Not only all that. The Ahmadiyyas are persecuted by Muslims throughout the world - especially in Pakistan! (That's no surprise!) Just yesterday, an Ahmadiyya Muslim was murdered by a Pakistani Sunni Muslim for being a 'heretic'. How Muslims hate each other!
Walsall South MP, Valerie Vaz, said:
‘Those who objected felt there were enough mosques here…. a lot of objections came from within the Muslim community.’
Sounds good, doesn’t it? There were 800 objections – ‘many of whom were Muslim’. No it doesn’t!
The following is taken from Wikipedia. It should clarify things a little:
“Orthodox Muslims consider both Ahmadi movements to be heretics and non-Muslims for a number of reasons, chief among them being the question of finality of prophethood, since they believe members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community do not regard the Islamic prophet Muhammad as the last prophet…Ahmadi Muslims believe Ghulam Ahmad to be the Mahdi and promised Messiah.”

*) I've just heard that there has been a serious bomb attack on a mosque in Pakistan. The mosque belongs to a Pakistani 'minority Islamic sect'! Incredible!... It was an Ahmadiyya mosque!
