Frederick Case, Guyana’s High Commissioner to the UK; flanked on the left by his wife Asian Rahaman and on the right by Guyana’s President of the Ahmadiyya Community, Aftabudim Nassir; and Ahsan Ullah Mangat, Missionary in Charge of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at GuyanaBy Devina Samaroo In LondonIn an emotionally charged ambiance, thousands of followers pledged their allegiance to His Holiness, Mizra Masroor Ahmad, as the golden jubilee of the Jalsa Salana rolled into its final day.The Jalsa Salana, also known as the annual convention of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, is observed to promote a life of peace and righteous in accordance to the teachings of the Holy Quran.A key highlight of this yearly event is the spiritual moment when worshippers from across the world gather together to renew their pledge to His Holiness and the teachings of Islam.This year, the community recorded over 500,000 new followers, who joined the community between the period July 2015 to June 2016.During his closing address, His Holiness re-emphasised the need for peace among all mankind.He underscored the need for everyone to recognise each other’s worth and uphold each other’s rights.He reiterated that women’s rights to freedom ought not to be denied and that any attempt of deprivation must be strongly condemned and forbidden.His Holiness strongly denounced racial discrimination or discrimination of any form, and he called on everyone to do the same.Other notable speakers took centre stage to deliver messages of peace and encouraged the world to strive to establish justice and equality among humankind.Behind the scenesOver 5000 volunteers worked over a 28-day period to transform the vast fields into a magnificent tented village.In fact, the pooling of ideas and drafting of plans for the event commenced long before the physical work got underway.One of the main organisers and spokesperson of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Farooq Aftab, explained that the members worked through day and night to ensure everything was smoothly executed for the three-day convention.“It’s a huge operation. We have men, women and children all involved who help in the erection of the marquis, logistics, car parking, and these are people from all over the United Kingdom. It’s a tremendous amount of work and we are all volunteers. We don’t get paid for this. The motivation is our religion,” he stated.He noted too that the work of the volunteers also continues even after Jalsa Salana concludes, as they have less than two weeks to dismantle the little village to get the land ready for farming purposes again, in keeping with the lease agreement. And shortly afterwards, the cycle repeats as planning stages kick off for the event next year.Expanding homeWhile the count of Ahmadis in Guyana stands at around 300, Guyanese High Commissioner to the UK, Frederick Chase, emphasised that the community needs to do more so its presence can be felt all throughout the country.“They need to get more among the Guyanese people, telling them about the religious organisation and how it promotes peace. That way, people are bound to become interested and they will participate,” he said.The High Commissioner was definitely inspired by the proliferation of messages promoting peace, love and harmony across various cultural divides.“The purpose of religious practices and religion is to promote peace, so whichever religion a person may belong, their religious mission is to promote peace,” he noted.He was also remarkably impressed by the friendliness of the people and joviality the entire atmosphere.
The Ministry of Commerce and Industry in close consultation with the management of the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company (LPRC), has with immediate effect, announced another reduction in the pump prices of gasoline and diesel by 25 cents each.The circular confirming the price reductions was signed by the Minister of Commerce and Industry, Axel Addy, and LPRC Managing Director, T. Nelson Williams, II respectively, and took effect as of Tuesday, October 28, 2014.The reduction in these petroleum products came about as a result of the price on the world market. The Ministry release further indicated once the prices of these products drop, the ministry will also act upon it.This is the third time in a month that the prices of gasoline and diesel have been decreased, the statement said.According to the LPRC management, this means the wholesale price for gasoline is US$3.63 cents, and diesel is put at US$3.68 cents, while the pump price for gasoline is US$3.81 (L$325), and diesel is US$3.86 (L$330).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Fort St. John will now suspend the default status of their Enerplex contract with design/build firm Field, Field and Field for one month.Earlier this year, the city placed the joint venture group into default of their contract due to their failure to resolve the issue of safety padding around the Enerplex’s speedskating oval. However, in what Facilities Director Jim Rogers is calling a “positive” step, the city has agreed to suspend the default status while a “task force” that includes Field, Field and Field members works on the issue.- Advertisement -The move comes as a result of the firm’s failure to produce an adequate solution to the padding problems by a September 20th deadline. Despite that failure, Rogers insists that all parties involved are moving towards a solution to the issue.City manager Dianne Hunter says that the difficulties the city is facing with the developer are similar to those faced by any community embarking on a large-scale project with a contractor.

11 July 2013South African couple Stan and Sally Hannath are driving 28 000 kilometres, from Norway back to their home in Cape Town, to raise awareness and funds for the construction of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital in Johannesburg.The expedition began in June and will see the couple travel through 27 countries over a period of about four months.Their itinerary takes in Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and finally South Africa.The couple have already covered 5 700 kilometres of the journey and travelled through six countries, including Germany, Sweden and Estonia.“Our planned and self-funded journey, called cape2cape4kids, will take us from NordKapp in Norway to Cape Agulhas in South Africa,” Stan Hannath said in a statement ahead of their departure.“We plan to visit many hospitals and schools along the way to raise awareness for the new children’s hospital in Johannesburg.”There is an overwhelming demand for a specialist paediatric hospital in the region and, once built, the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital will be one of only five dedicated children’s hospitals in Africa.The four current hospitals have to serve about 450-million children across the continent, according to the www.cape2cape4kids.co.za project, in comparison to 23 children’s hospitals in Canada, 20 in Germany and 19 in Australia.“This hospital, to be built in Johannesburg, the gateway to Africa, epitomises Nelson Mandela’s love of children and is considered his final legacy to the children of Africa,” says cape2cape4kids.All contributions and donations from the trip will be handed directly to the hospital, through recognised donation websites Givengain and Justgiving.“Stan and Sally’s mission to travel not only across countries but also across continents is as inspiring as it is humbling,” said Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust chief executive officer, Sibongile Mkhabela.“We are honoured that they have chosen the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust as the beneficiary of their fundraising endeavour, and we look to the global community to also consider how they can help Madiba’s wish for a dedicated children’s hospital come true.”SAinfo reporter
Deccan Chargers are sure to have plans ready to tie down the dangerous Delhi Daredevils openers David Warner and Virender Sehwag while home team coach Greg Shipperd admitted that the duo holds the aces for their team.While Sehwag hasn’t had an impressive start to the tournament, with just 60 runs from three games so far, Warner has played some useful knocks, scoring 101 runs.Ahead of Tuesday’s match, both camps admitted that the openers would be the cynosure of all eyes and their performance would be crucial to the final result of the match.All-rounder Cameron White said that Deccan Chargers would have to come up with a plan for Warner and Sehwag.” We will spend a lot of time on planning about those two ( Sehwag and Warner). Delhi has a lot of good players, so restricting them and taking wickets will be the key for us,” he said after the team’s training session on Monday.The Australian also pointed out that the Chargers may have registered just one victory in four outings, but they are certainly not out of reckoning as yet.” Although we have lost three games, we could have won those matches easily. The result could have gone either way. We have shown that we can win at home now. We have a brand new team and it doesn’t matter what the conditions are, I think we have the team,” said White, who hasn’t played a game yet in IPL IV. White pointed out that so far no clear cut leader has emerged.advertisement” It seems everyone is beating everyone and there is no unbeaten team so far. The tournament is wide open and it is benefit of not starting too well. The top team has two or three wins,” he said.” We have a good all- round team and in ( Amit) Mishra and ( Pragyan) Ojha we have two of the best Indian spinners and two of the best fast bowlers as well.” Chipli is one of the leading run- scorers in the tournament. He started with Bangalore, so I knew him before we moved here ( Deccan Chargers) and it’s good to see him come good. He is doing quite well. He has shown glimpses of what he can do.” Meanwhile, Daredevils coach Shipperd said after the heroics against Pune Warriors on Sunday, the team is expecting another good start from Sehwag and Warner.” There will be expectations from Sehwag and Warner. Sehwag is a world class player in all forms and Warner has a strong reputation as a T20 player,” he said. ” We have a lot of hopes on them to get us to a fine start. It was good that our batting clicked, but it gets a lot easier for the middle order if they both get us off to a good start.” It is a huge relief that we won after the two losses. It was an important game and the team responded really well. We were extremely competitive but still there are areas where we need improvement. We gifted them 20 runs more and there was some sloppy fielding. So we will have to plug those holes against a quality side like Chargers.” On Irfan Pathan, who has been off- colour so far, Shipperd said: ” He is a wise cricketer.The length of the tournament is perfect for him to get back into the groove. He is a great player and is also providing useful information to us in terms of planning good strategy for the matches.”
