Second Amendment: Anti-Ahmadi groups plan for September 7 anniversary

ET: LAHORE: 

Anti-Ahmadi groups are planning to hold up to 10 conferences in the first week of September to mark the passage of the Second Amendment to the Constitution on September 7, 1974, when Ahmadis were declared to be non-Muslims in Pakistan.

The day is celebrated every year by anti-Ahmadi groups, but the number of events planned in Lahore this year far surpasses previous years, said members of the Ahmadi community.

Ziaul Haq Naqshbandi, spokesperson for Tahaffuz-i-Namoos-i-Risalat Mahaz, said that he was heartened by how many groups were planning to mark the day. “Seeing the number of Khatm-i-Nabuwat conferences this year … it seems that the lovers of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) have joined hands against those trying to negate the concept of the finality of the Prophet. Soon, there will be a time when there is no room for apostates.”

These Khatm-i-Nabuwat conferences usually consist of various maulvis giving speeches calling for social boycott of Ahmadis, their removal from Sunni Muslim neighbourhoods, and even for their murder as a source of blessings from Allah.

  1. Its the present government’s tactics to distract the masses from the real problems facing this unfortunate nation. The government is handing out millions of Rupees to these Maulvis to arrange these so called ‘conferences’ which are nothing more than abusing farse. The more the money from the government the more the number of ‘conferences’, this is as simple as that.
