Andhra Pradesh, India: Muslim-controlled State Wakf Board issue boycott orders for Ahmadis

Source: AhmadiyyaTimes

World’s largest democracy, India, was given a black eye yesterday when a Muslim controlled governmental entity, the State Wakf Board in Andhra Pradesh (AP) enacted hate based policies towards a religious minority in Hyderabad.

According to the steps taken on February 18 by the AP State Wakf Board, the administration has announced a complete boycott of the Ahmadi Muslims in India and instituted that no members of the Board will provide services to Ahmadīs for their faith-based needs such as Muslim matrimonial services, marriage licenses and performing of wedding ceremonies.

The State Wakf Boards operate under the Wakf Act of 1954 in India to administer Muslim religious institutions such as mosque, shrines, graveyards and various charitable religious entities donated for public use. The Board undertakes the work of issuing of marriage certificates, divorce certificates and many types of religiously required documents, etc.

  2. How strange that though disunited among themselves, the whole Muslim world is united against our peaceful Jama’at, yet provides no legitimate arguments against it!

    May Allah give them ‘Ilm’ and sense, Ameen.

  3. O Allah forgive them they don’t know what they are doing. All these persecution testify the trufulness of Ahmadiyya and is a lesson for a seeker of truth.

  4. As per Indian laws, Ahmadi Muslims are recognised as those who profess Islam and are muslims

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahmadiyya#India
    Ahmadis are held to be Muslims by law in India. Their legal status as Muslims is supported by a landmark ruling by the Kerala High Court on 8 December 1970 in the case of Shihabuddin Imbichi Koya Thangal vs K.P. Ahammed Koya, citation A.I.R. 1971 Ker 206.

  5. Instead of repeating your beliefs to MAGHZUB-E- ALAIHIM, please, do the following.
    Contact Amnesty International,Human Rights Watch & other similar organizations.
    Contact the Foriegn Office in the country of your residence.
    Contact the Indian Embassy, same as above.
    Contact the UN Human Rights Commission.
    Indian Ahmadis may contact The Chief Minister & other elected official of AP.
    Challenge the law in AP High Court.

  6. They have asked not to provide any faith based services for Ahmadis.

    I don’t think Ahmadis use the Board for their Faith Based Services (Nikkah etc). probably the Board felt little ignored, left out—

  7. dear anwar,how can you call Muslims ‘maghzoobe alaihim’ when they recite Kalima, recite Quran, believe in 5 basic tenets of Islam. one need not be narrow minded, parochial, and spiteful. tit for tat does not solve the problem, it is better to pray for their guidance.

  8. From the post of O J Deen of 21 Feb 2012:
    We are Muslim,
    Islam is our religion
    and Quraan is our Book,
    Muhammad ( S A ) is our Rasool
    and ALLAH is our GOD.
    ——————————
    That is true. The non-Ahmadis Muslims were calling each other Kafir in years 1850 AD. Now they are calling Ahmadis as Kafir.
    The problem is these non-Amadi maulvis do not know the basic meaning of Momin, Muslim, Kafir and Murtadd. I can prove it.
    They call every one who has not recited the Kalimah as Kafir. That person may be a peaceful Hindu or Christian or Budhist or a peaceful man in Afrika. That is not the right thing.
    I will post here the true meanings of these important Quranic words and it will prove the ignorance of the non-Ahmadi maulvis, Insha Allah. Please wait out. Wassalam.
