The Founder of Ahmadiyya laid emphasis of Islam as a religion of peace. Our current Khalifa is preoccupied with how the world will achieve global peace and has made several tours before the Covid 19. Nigeria was one of the countries on the list before the outbreak, hence the visit was halted . His key message during the tours is how the world will embrace justice and peace and he has written many books on this.
