SILVER SPRING, Md., June 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Thousands of American Muslims wait in anticipation for the historic U.S. visit of His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad, worldwide spiritual and administrative head (Khalifa) of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, in June. As the Muslim leader commanding the largest following of Muslims in the world, His Holiness visits the U.S. shortly after contacting several world leaders -- including President Barack Obama, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad -- to resolve international differences with diplomacy and to avoid violence at all costs in order to prevent a Third World War.
During his visit, His Holiness will meet with not only thousands of American Muslims but also with significant U.S. government leaders to strengthen relationships and find means of establishing peace and justice for all people.
On the morning of June 27th, His Holiness will deliver the keynote address at a special bi-partisan reception at the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill entitled, "The Path to Peace: Just Relations Between Nations." In conjunction with the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission and the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), the event will include a welcome address by Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, as well as remarks by U.S. Senator Robert Casey and Representatives Frank Wolf, Mike Honda and Keith Ellison. Dozens more members of Congress, Ambassadors and thought leaders from across the country are expected in attendance.
His Holiness will also preside over the 64th Annual Convention of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on June 29th through July 1st. As the nation's oldest annual Islamic convention, this three day event is expected to attract over 12,000 American Muslims and 1,000 non-Muslim guests.

About the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community:
Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a dynamic, fast growing, international revival movement within Islam. Founded in 1889, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community spans 200 countries with membership exceeding tens of millions. Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, established in 1920, is the first American-Muslim organization.
Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the only Islamic organization to believe that the long-awaited messiah has come in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) of Qadian. Ahmad claimed to be the metaphorical second coming of Jesus of Nazareth and the divine guide, whose advent was foretold by the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad. The Community believes that God sent Ahmad, like Jesus, to end religious wars, condemn bloodshed and reinstitute morality, justice and peace. Ahmad's advent has brought about an unprecedented era of Islamic revival and moderation. He divested Muslims of fanatical beliefs and practices by vigorously championing Islam's true and essential teachings.
