AMSA Events Alert: Did Jesus Die (UCL); Islam and Terrorism (QMUL)

UCLU AMSA Presents

“Did Jesus Die” BBC documentary screening and Q&A with director

Wednesday 18th January 2012 at 6 pm – 8.30 pm

Location: Cruciform Lecture Theatre 2, Cruciform Building, Gower Street, University College London (UCL), London, WC1E 6JF (map)

“Did Jesus Die?” is a documentary produced by Richard Denton, ex-director in the BBC,presenting a theory of crucifixion that originated with Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (peace be upon him), founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. The documentary will be asking the question as to whether Jesus(peace be upon him) in fact survived the crucifixion and whether his being seen after the crucifixion was an example of survival rather than resurrection.

The documentary then examines the question as to where Jesus (peace be upon him) disappeared after the crucifixion, by investigating various claims that he travelled to the south of France and even England. Finally, the documentary raises the evidence that Jesus (peace be upon him) travelled to India, Tibet and Nepal before dying at an old age and being buried there in the Khan Yar quarter of Srinagar, Kashmir, India, where his tomb is said to reside.Following the film screening, a Q&A will be held with Richard Denton, director of “Did Jesus Die?” to answer any questions pertaining to his personal views on the theories covered in the screening, as well as his own experience of visiting the purported tomb of Jesus (peace be upon him). An additional guest to the Q&A will be Arif Khan, a representative of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association. Arif Khan runs the largest website about the purported tomb of Jesus (peace be upon him) (http://www.tombofjesus.com/).

It is hoped that this event will demonstrate a different aspect of Jesus’ beauty and success and a life of his, hitherto unknown.

Queen Mary AMSA Presents

Islam and Terrorism

Thursday 26th January 2012 at 6 pm – 8.30 pm

Location: Bancroft 1.01.2 Lecture Theater, Francis Bancroft, Mile End,
Queen Mary University, E1 4NS (map)

Yet another year starts with increased sectarian violence and continued terrorist attacks. It is only natural for the public to assume that within the religion of Islam there must lie some justification for such horror.

QMUL AMSA are thus hosting an event to dispel any such thoughts: ‘Islam & Terrorism – Your Questions Answered’ will take place on Thursday 26th January here at QMUL. It will elucidate the true teachings of Islam on the subject of terrorism and apostasy, before answering common allegations against the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The speaker will then go on to explain the origins of ‘Islamic’ terrorism, before giving what AMSA feels is the cure to the cancer of extremism.

COME AND BRING YOUR FRIENDS! ALL ARE WELCOME!

Peace,

Queen Mary AMSA President

MKA RA Research Conference 2011 Part 2

“Creativity is intelligence having fun.” [Albert Einstein]

Day 2

Its 0300 and I have woken up, whilst everyone around me is fast asleep. I walk out of our dormitory and walk into the conference room, trying to somehow side-step the creaking wooden floor beneath me. I stop and listen. Pin drop silence. It’s still pretty warm in this summer’s night. I decide, it’s best if I say thanks to Allah and accordingly offer tahajjud prayers, whilst I await the tired delegates to wake up for Fajr.

MKA RA Research Conference 2011 Part 1

An Account of an Ahmadi Researcher to the Greatest Conference ever!

I sat there at the edge of the room, taking it all in, this was the calm before the storm.
It is 0930, on Saturday 2nd July, with a bright blue sky outside, promising uninterrupted sunshine induced with summer country air and all those “refreshing” aromas surrounding it… we are waiting. Continue reading

Science Festivals

The UK hosts a plethora of science festivals up and down the country throughout the year. The biggest one being the British Science Festival which took place just under a month ago. But Britain’s appetite for science festivals doesn’t stop there. If you were unfortunate to have missed any of these jam-packed festivals, well, worry not. UK’s biggest science enthusiast cities (in my humble opinion), Manchester and London, will be holding their own science festivals this month.

London Science festival
19th – 26th October 2011

Manchester Science Festival 
22nd – 30th October 2011

If you are planning to go to any of them, we would love to know your thoughts and maybe we might see you there!
