    The city of Brampton acknowledged the invaluable contributions rendered by Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya and proclaimed the month of July as the Ahmadiyya Muslim Heritage Month. The Mayor of Brampton, Patrick Brown, announced this at the Mubarak Mosque, during the Canada Day celebrations on 1 July 2023.

    On the occasion of Jalsa Salana Canada 2023, the Mayor presented Amir Jamaat Canada, Lal Khan Malik Sahib, with the official proclamation. The proclamation celebrated Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya’s heritage and its invaluable contributions to society.

    To celebrate Ahmadiyya Muslim Heritage Month, a special event was held on 24 July 2023, at Brampton City Hall.

    The event started with the recitation from the Holy Quran and its English translation. Territory Acknowledgement was next, recognising the traditional territory of the Indigenous people who called the land home before the arrival of settlers and, in many cases, still do.

    Secretary Umur-e-Kharijiyya Jamaat Canada, Asif Khan Sahib, delivered the opening remarks, thanking the City of Brampton for their recognition. Mayor Brown expressed his gratitude and appreciation for Jamaat Canada’s contributions to the community. 

    A number of Brampton’s politicians were also present. Member of Parliament (Federal) Sonia Sidhu and Member of Provincial Assembly Amarjot Sandhu, each gave a speech acknowledging the significant impact of Jamaat’s efforts in Canada and particularly in the City of Brampton.

    Local Amir Brampton West Imarat, Abdul Jabar Zafar Sahib, extended a vote of thanks to the Mayor of Brampton and all the distinguished guests. Local Amir Brampton presented the Mayor of Brampton with a model of Minarat-ul-Masih as a token of appreciation.

    As the event neared its conclusion, all attendees gathered outside the city hall for the flag-raising ceremony. Mayor Patrick Brown proudly raised the Liwa-e-Ahmadiyyat.

    More than 400 guests were present at the event.
