As you may have heard, the Right Honourable Prime Minister Stephen Harper officially launched the Office of Religious Freedom for Canada today from Aiwan Tahir located at our National Headquarters at Baitul Islam.
The visit of the PM, the announcement, what the office stands for and the acknowledgement that Jama'at Ahmadiyya received today are all due to the blessing of Khilafat and to prayers.
However, we cannot just enjoy the moment – we must also seize it!
As you enjoy the news coverage, please also assist in making the news. You may google to find many news related stories. The following link will allow you to listen to the audio of the presentation today (please scroll to bottom of page to view: http://www.pm.gc.ca/eng/media.asp?category=1&id=5306 ) I am sure the video will be up shortly as well.
Attached is a Press Release that requires your immediate attention. Today is the day to capitalize on this event as tomorrow the news itself will become old.
PLEASE distribute the attached Press Release to all of your media contacts and political contacts ASAP.
At the same time, you are requested to write letters to the editors, op-eds, and comment online to articles posted in major newspapers. In order to make this task easier to do, I have included a copy of our “Talking Points” to assist in your own writing efforts. PLEASE DO NOT DISTRIBUTE the Talking Points document.
Please distribute this message to all Jama'at members as well.
