Ahmadis to boycott polls: spokesman

Dawn: LAHORE: Some 200,000 members of Pakistan’s minority Ahmadi community will boycott next month’s election in protest at their treatment by the authorities, a spokesman said Monday.

“We have been boycotting the election process since 1985 when Ahmadi voters were put in the list of religious minorities,” Saleemuddin, a spokesman for Jamaat-e-Ahmadiya told AFP.

He said the community wanted its voters to be included in the joint electorate system.

“We will stay away from the election and boycott it like in the past to register our protest,” he said.
