Dead or alive, the Ahmadi community of Pakistan has not been spared from discrimination and hate crimes in our country for decades. Another atrocity against the community occurred in Model Town, Lahore on December 3, in which over 100 gravestones of the deceased were destroyed. According to reports, the terrorists — admitting to being members of a banned organisation and the Taliban — arrived with weapons and excavation tools, wearing masks. After locking up guards and caretakers, they stormed graves and smashed gravestones, which, for some, possibly marked the last memorabilia of their deceased loved ones.
