Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad says principle of justice being undermined by financial interests
On 28th October 2016, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad delivered an historic lecture at York University in Toronto in front of an audience of more than 180 guests, including academics, politicians, media and thought leaders.
The event titled “Justice in an Unjust World” – was organised by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Canada in collaboration with York University.
During his address, His Holiness spoke of increasing conflict in the world and the heightened risk of another world war.
His Holiness began his address by stating that whilst human intelligence had been utilised to rapidly progress in technological and scientific advancements, it had also, on occasion, been used as a ‘force for evil and destruction’.
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“Technology has been developed that has the capability of wiping nations off the map with the press of a button. I am referring to the development of weapons of mass destruction that are capable of inflicting the most unimaginable horrors and devastation. Such weapons are being produced that have the potential to destroy not only civilisation today but to also leave behind a legacy of misery for generations to come.”
Referring to the current global unrest, His Holiness said that as a Muslim leader, it was a cause of grief to him personally, that today’s world conflicts and terrorism were being associated with Islam.
