The Muslim Times’ Editor’s Note: Those with eyes open and sight working should not find it difficult to read this article and then see what is happening to Ahmadiyya Muslims completely in contrast to what is being stated in this article. Founded in 1889, by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, Promised Messiah and Mehdi, Ahmadiyya Muslims have grown to become a global movement with established presence in 202 countries and territories. It has built thousands of mosques, schools and carried out service of humanity irrespective of caste, creed or nationality over the last 124 years of its establishment. The rise and rise of Ahmadiyya Muslims in contrast to consistent decline of non Ahmadiyya Muslims should be an eye opener for all who wish to find out the truth and see in practice on whose side God is.
Dawn: Najmuddin Shiekh: MYANMAR is a country that is supposed to be recovering from years of dictatorial rule and moving towards democracy and an opening up to the rest of the world.

It is also here, however, that Buddhists are killing Muslims with the apparent complicity of government forces, most recently in the town of Meiktila. This blatant violation of human rights, duly documented in a BBC-obtained video has elicited no more of a response from Aung San Suu Kyi, than previous massacres documented and now released by the Human Rights Watch office in New York.
The European Union, taking its cue from America, has lifted sanctions as a reward for moving away from military rule and so far appears unmoved by the atrocities visited upon the Rohingya Muslims who are primarily distinguished from other Burmese only by their religion. The Muslim world has done little to ameliorate the plight of these Muslims other than support token resolutions in the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC).
In Nigeria, the latest clashes in the north between the Boko Haram, translated loosely as ‘western education is forbidden’, and the Nigerian army has, according to some possibly exaggerated reports, killed 185 people.
