Very grateful to have been asked to join the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Scotland New Year event, and to speak to those in attendance.
I was very struck by the efforts which had been made to include such a diverse range of guests representing all faiths and none, and by the focus at all times on the Ahmadiyya ethos of love for all and hatred for none. So good to see the display of handiwork - beautiful embroidery in particular.
Glad to hear powerful speeches dealing with the importance of interfaith work and the need for peace in the world. Lovely also to get the change to speak to so many constituents who were in attendance.
My thanks to all those involved in organising this important annual event which it is always my pleasure to attend.
