    Young Muslims in Milton Keynes help with poppy appeal

    Young people from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) have been selling poppies to help the Royal British Legion.

    The young people have been selling poppies at the Aldi supermarket store in Bletchley.

    Youth leader for Milton Keynes, Azarullah Chaudhry, said: “We pay tribute to the special contribution of families, as well as the emergency services. And we acknowledge those innocent civilians who have lost their lives in conflict and acts of terrorism." 

    He added: "It is our duty to help the poppy appeal and we were delighted to be able to help in some small way. Islam urges every person to partake in charitable giving, and that even an act of kindness towards another is charity. 

    The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) looks to aid in the development of young Muslims.

    The organisation has been particularly successful in insuring that its members are a source of peace for the society around them.

    They are regularly seen in markets, stations and high streets preaching their Islamic motto of ‘Love for All Hatred for None.’
