A new sculpture has been placed on the Windsor riverfront.

The sculpture was installed on Oct. 20 and was donated by Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama‘at, a fast-growing Muslim group in Windsor’s Islam community.

The sculpture consists of four differently coloured hands, representing the differences between culture and races. The hands raise together to hold a big globe, which says “Love for all, Hatred for None.”  The sculpture is also the promotion of the community. The goal is that this sculpture will bring a message of peace and unite Windsor residents.

The sculpture is also intended to start conversation between different cultures and eliminate negative opinions about the Muslim community.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama‘at , a revival movement in Islam, was created by Mirzā Ghulām Ahmad. He believes the reformation of Islamic society should follow Islamic ideas and has advocated for a peaceful propagation of Islam. Members in this group believe that the Messiah has come in the form of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. Numbers in the movement have exceeded more than tens of millions worldwide.
