Islam: Religion of Peace or Terror? is the theme of a public meeting planned for this Sunday in Summerland.

Sponsored by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community based in Surrey, the meeting will be held from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Odd Fellows and Rebekah Hall, 9536 Main St.

President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Rizwan Peerzada said, “I condemn the firebombing in Paris last week of Charlie Hebdo, a French satirical weekly newspaper. Although no one has claimed responsibility for the attack, it was likely a reaction to a scathing cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad that the magazine planned to publish.”

The Summerland meeting is part of an effort to promote religious harmony across Canada.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has sponsored a series of interfaith meetings in the Lower Mainland and Northern B.C.
