We're Muslims too, avows Ahmadiyya follower
The Ahmadiyya religious movement is not a “new religion” but is in fact Islam, insists a follower.
In a forum organised by NGO Projek Dialog, Ahmadiyya follower Salahuddin Syed Ali said this was especially true as its followers believe in the five pillars of Islam and the six articles of Islamic faith.
Despite this, followers of the movement - which was founded near the end of the 19th century by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad - have always been targets of persecution due to slander, said Salahuddin.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
