Persecution of Ahmadis in the Islamic Republic

  1. This mindless persecution is bound to continue. As Ahmadiyat shall keep on progressing there shall come a day when this persecution will be backed by super powers like America and Russia and China and other economic and political mega states.This is part of the journey of Truth on which we are moving.
