    This mosque is The Fazl Mosque, (also known as The London Mosque), on Gressenhall Road in Southfields.

    The man in the turban is actually Khalifatul Masih II, Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad.

    90 years ago ... 90 years later we are the image of the true peaceful Islam in the world:

    Muslimsforlife(dot)org - successfully collected 10,000 pints of blood to honor 3,000 dead of 9/11 (by saving 30,000 lives.
    Muslimsforpeace(dot)org - condemning terrorism, promoting Islamic value of loyalty to ones nation, peace, bus-ads and flyers and leaflets to promote the same.

    This footage has a lot of spiritual importance to us.
