Rabwah Times Publisher Receiving Death Threats!

RABWAH, PAKISTAN — Publisher of the Pakistani-based Rabwah Times, a small online news publication founded in 2008 to highlight the plight the Islamic sect of Ahmadiyya, is today reporting its publisher, 21-year-old Ehsan A Rehan, has been receiving threatening phone calls calling on him to stop publishing stories against Khatm e Nabuwat.

  1. Unless you have concrete proof and show the proof or some police FIR reference, such a generic and ambiguous post is just a poor try by the young man to claim asylum. When Alfazl and other newspapers are routinely published from Chenab Nagar (Rabwah), why would this little site be targeted?

  3. That is their entire ability, capacity and identity. They are “butchers” not Ulama or the scholars.
    Had they been scholars or had they the least knowldeg of the Sunnaah of Hudhur Sallahau Alaihiwasallam they would have responded in a sensible, reasonable literal and knowledgeable way.
    Inna Lillahi waa Inna Ilaihi rajioon.
    May God have Marcy on the Ummah of His Bloved Prophet.Amen

  4. I have bits of recordings if someone would like to hear and FYI I have no intention of claiming asylum I have just returned from London to work on this and have been since 2008.
