"I applaud the efforts of the AMA to strive for peace and to build bridges between diverse communities... I therefore applaud the AMA ethos `Love for All Hatred for None' that underpins all their work.
As one of the oldest Islamic Communities in the Capital, who build the first London Mosque, the Ahmadis have been an important part of the history of the city and it is fitting that they are also part of the historic celebration for the Diamond Jubilee."
"I send my best wishes to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association who are supporting this year's Poppy Appeal.
I'm delighted to hear over 300 members will be out in force throughout November collecting at train stations and other places around the country.
It's great to see so many young people giving up their own time to help those who have served our country while remembering those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice."
