  1. When will the Pakistanis, and for that matter all Muslims, notice, that Pakistan has deteriorated more and more since Ahmadis were declared non-Muslims in 1974. (Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, who initiated this resolution, while awaiting his death, said to the Khalifa of the Ahmadis; ‘I know of course that you are a better Muslim than me. This was just for ‘the purpose of the constitution’). Ah, well, it led to his death and the downward trend of the whole nation.

  2. Very sad and pity such intolerant statement toward Ahmadiyyah. Only God has the right to judge people’s belief. No one has the right to judge other belief.

    Do you know Rafiq and Zia, why the extremist wahabi
    Persecute or kill Shiah Muslim, ahmadiyyah Muslim, sufi Muslim and Christian ( unbeliever or khafir). ?

    Not because of Power game, but they follow false hadith and violent verses like below:

    Sahih Muslim 33—”I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah” Sahih Muslim 4366—“ Sahih Muslim 6922:—Those who changed his Islamic religion, kill them.
    O Prophet, carry out Jihad (struggle) against the disbelievers and hypocrites, and be strict with them. And their abode is Jahannam (Hell), and it is an evil terminus. Q.9:73.

    Wahhabi clerics accuse Syiah, Ahmadiyyah, Sufi are hypocrite or Khafir. That is why Wahhabi clerics ban Syiah, Ahmadiyyah, Sufi and Christian.

    That is why I always demand The authority of Saudi Arabia — al Azhar—to denounce or declare that all violent Hadith and verses of Al Quran are INVALID.

    Do you agree Rafiq, you should agree my suggestion otherwise they continue to persecute and kill Ahmadiyyah every where.


    • Before 1974 the late King Feisal played with the idea of declaring himself Khalifa. There are many indications to this fact. Now, there is no place in Islam to have two Khalifas. Consequently he had to make moves to declare the Ahmadis none-Muslim and that is what he requested Zulfiqar Ali bhutto to do. Well, we know that Allah had other plans. See the end of both these personalities. The Saudis do not like the Ahmadis because we consider our highest spiritual authority to be our Khalifa. The Saudis however would like to be considered the highest Authority, because of the fact that they are custodian of the two holy mosques. During Hajj the Saudis find lots and lots of different Muslims, some of which the Saudis do not like, but still they tolerate it. No problem, because they do not pose a political / power challenge. Therefore, again, you may be partly right, but I may be partly right too.
