Feilding questions from newsmen before his address to the parliament, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

On issues of current migrant crisis that is affecting Europe, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said: “We believe that whoever is deprived or in danger should be given the opportunity to live his or her life with true freedom. Thus genuine refugees should be helped and given the opportunity to settle abroad but we should also seek to establish peace in their home countries so that eventually it is safe for them to return.”
