Welcome to the website of the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.
The APPG brings together parliamentarians from all parties who are keen to support the work of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community. The community is one of Britain’s oldest established Muslim communities, having been in the UK since 1913. It built London’s first mosque (in Southfields) and in Morden it built the largest mosque in Western Europe. It has more than 130 branches across the UK and is the largest organised Muslim community in the UK.
The group seeks to make all parliamentarians aware of the extensive positive work done by the Ahmadiyya community and speak up on issues of persecution and extremism that Ahmadi Muslims face abroad and in the UK. It also speaks up on human rights more widely, in particular freedom of religion, to engender greater societal peace.
The APPG is chaired by Siobhain McDonagh MP, with the Secretariat provided by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community UK
The APPG holds regular meetings, holds events and presses the governments for action.
