The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat in Sierra Leone achieved a significant milestone on May 22nd, 2023, by inaugurating the Muslim Television Ahmadiyya International Sierra Leone station at their Bath Street Head office in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
This endeavor reflects their commitment to disseminate accurate and timely information about the teachings of Islam across the country.
The establishment of this television station marks a pivotal moment for the mission, as it will enable them to reach both their followers and non-followers with enriching and timely programs, even in the most remote parts of the nation.
During the ceremony, the Amir, Mr. Musa Mewa Sahib, expressed his gratitude to God Almighty for this wonderful initiative.
