MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee-area Muslims are concerned after another attack Muslim extremists are taking responsibility for.

Those with the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community say "true Islam" and the vast majority of Muslims hate to see these terror attacks and the subsequent loss of life.

They say these attacks go against their religion.

"This is not rooted at all in the faith of Islam," Rizwan Ahmad said.

Ahmad helped to launch a national campaign called "True Islam."

In December 2015, members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community began to speak out -- meeting with federal officials and educating them about Islam and its peaceful beliefs.

"The true teachings of Islam forbids all types of bloodshed, forbids all types of violence. What happened (in Brussels, Belgium) was a suicide bombing. Suicide is strictly forbidden in the practice of Islam," Ahmad said.

The violence in Belgium Tuesday, March 22nd is the most recent incident in a series of incidents that Ahmad says is fueling anti-Islam sentiment in the United States. The violence, Ahmad says, outrages those who are members of his mosque.

"The actions of those few speaks volumes unfortunately," Ahmad said.

ahmad3Ahmad pointed out there are billions of Muslims in the world, and the percentage of extremists is very small -- though he knows their actions speak volumes. To combat this, he and others are looking for signs within their community as it relates to those who may begin to become radicalized, and if that happens, they work to stop it.

"If you see something, say something type of deal," Ahmad said.

Ahmad says through meetings, education and their website, TrueIslam.com, many Muslims are trying to fight stereotypes and combat terrorism.

"This is not who we are. This is not what 'true Islam' teaches," Ahmad said.

Ahmad said there is concern about those who don't know what Muslims are about, and the possibility they could react based on the terror attacks, but he said that is the exact reason the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has launched this campaign.

    ISLAM IS TERRORISM, ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORIST, what else do you need to know the only difference between a MODERATE and an EXTREMIST is a knife at your throat

    Islam is inherently evil. It is a political ideology masquerading as a religion. There is no such thing as a moderate. If you believe what Muhammad wrote, then you are a terrorist, just waiting to kill anyone who don’t believe the crap he wrote.

Doesnt your profit Mohammad see christians as infidel and teach Muslims to” fight and kill all non believers until all religion belongs to allah” ..How can I trust a muslim when their profit mohammad teaches them it is ok to decieve christians and jews and pretend to be their friend or ally?

      What liberals fail to tell the world is ISLAM is a SATANIC religion! Muhammad was fooled by the pince of darkness who he really was fooling the teene-weeny brained Muhammad that he was the Angel Gabriel came to bring the goodnews. Is it surprising that under Islam evil things are considered to endear one to GOD — well in it may be true to them as their GOD is SATAN itself!

      • I remember

        Mohammad supposedly talked with angels in the darkness of a cave but Jesus talked with God in the light of day.
        Mohammad killed many people and spread his religion using violence, but Jesus never killed anybody only restored life and spread Christianity with love and unity.
        In the eyes of Jesus we are all brothers, In tge eyes of Mohammad all non Muslims are infidel.
        Too many people forget the true history behind the religion of Islam, Christianity and Judiasm.

    “True Islam” is violent and intolerant. Just read their damn books and look at the life of their wicked prophet. Muslim extremists are just following the words of their god and prophet and emulating their prophet. They’re not actually “extremists, they’re just good muslims, willing to take action. OPEN YOUR EYES! TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT ISLAM!

    It’s a requirement: you must be a Muslims in order for to become a terrorists. All Muslims are terrorists. Those so called moderate have not yet had a chance to strike, but eventually they will. It took a long time of planning and cooperation amongst Muslims before 9-11. Remember that Muslims terrorists failed to bring down the world trade center in 1993, so between 1993 and 2001, the so called Muslims moderate have been busy financing and helping those Muslims who are in the front line. Not all terrorists all on the field carrying out suicide attack, the brain power behind those savages, are the apparently law abiding Muslims citizen, those who have jobs and go to school, and college around the world, those so called moderate are what keep the suicide bomber, hiding in plain sight. That explain why the terrorist in Belgium was able to hide for so long, because Muslims were hiding and protecting him all that time. It is just a matter of time, before the so called moderates Muslims cal for the next strike….

    ISIS (Islamic State) All of these muslims in isis and al-Qaida are just doing what the koran teaches, They are following in the foot f their profit Mohammad. Any Muslim that claims he “loves” christians is either lieing behind his fake smile or does not understand their own religion. Devout muslims see jews and christians as infidel..not “brother” “bro” or “my friend” like Abu at the gas station says after you pay his “jizya”
