The Ahmadiyya Muslim community in Australia will get the honour only the fourth time in 110 years of Ahmadiyya presence in Australia to meet a Caliph. Last time His Holiness visited in 2006.

He has widely spoken on the need of establishing peace in the world. He initiated in 2004 an annual National Peace Symposium in the UK. He has recently spoken to European Parliamentarians in Brussels, the UK Parliamentarians at Westminster London and, Members of the US Congress and Senate at the Capitol Hill Washington DC. He has expressed his thoughts on the danger to world peace and our obligations as human beings to create an environment of tolerance and acceptance. He believes certain trends in the global quest for materialism and religious extremism may lead the humanity to another catastrophe similar to World War II. He has also advised through letters to the world leaders – including President Barack Obama, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - to resolve international differences with diplomacy and to avoid violence at all costs in order to prevent a Third World War. On the evening of 18th October, along with certain political leaders, His Holiness will deliver the keynote address on the establishment of peace and justice for all people at a special peace dinner event in Sydney.
