Letter to the Editor: Peace can only be attained through justice

Dear Editor,

President Trump deserves credit for mentioning the names of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s American victims at the Sunday press conference following his death, said CNN host Jake Tapper. Whereas this was a great thing that is appropriate of a world leader, it is in strike comparison to the swift overnight injustices unleashed by a few words over Twitter by the same person in the same region of the world that is desperate to attain peace.

It’s because of power plays like these that we are unable to attain world peace. There seem to be different standards for different groups of people at different times. The world at large is at unrest. There is hardly any place where there is peace.

As a Muslim woman, I believe that it is every person’s responsibility to work at this in our own communities, just as our Khalifa Mirza Masroor Ahmad has spoken on many world platforms about peace being attainable only through absolute justice.

One of the ways we are doing this is by holding a Peace symposium on November 2, 2019 1-4pm at our Milpitas mosque at 926 Evans Rd. This symposium will have distinguished speakers from different great religions of the world who will provide different perspectives.
