Will the World Take Heed?
Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad(aba), Khalifatul Masih V, Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has used various occasions around the world to impart a critical message to people from all walks of life, to strive to avert the impending nuclear war that the world is heading towards. In our January 2012 Edition, we featured the letter sent by His Holiness to Pope Benedict XVI. Then in our April Edition, we featured the letters send to world leaders by His Holiness to the leaders of Israel, Iran, USA and Canada in which he gave a stark warning that a global catastrophe looms before us if the world continues on its current path of injustice and inequity.
Thereafter, in our May Edition this year, we featured the historic address of His Holiness at the 9th Annual Peace Symposium ‘The Devastating Consequences of a Nuclear War and the Critical Need for Absolute Justice.’ Again, Hudhur (His Holiness) provided a lucid and clear-cut warning addressing the dignitaries, faith leaders and prominent personalities who attended the event: “In today’s world, one terrifying manifestation of God’s Decree could be in the shape of another world war” said His Holiness.
Here, in this Edition, The Review of Religions is honoured to present further letters sent by His Holiness to various world leaders. These letters have not yet been published anywhere, and so we are privileged to present these for the first time. It is our hope and prayer that world leaders heed to the call of the Khalifa (Successor) of the Promised Messiah(as), before it is too late.
