Why Ahmadi Muslims are doomed in Pakistan


Kaaba in Mecca, a symbol of brotherhood among the Muslims. The Muslim Times has the best collection of articles to overcome sectarianism among the Muslims.  Secularism in the public arena is the best tool for that

There are no sounds of a Sunday mass, bells of a temple, chants of Gurbani, or recitation of the Quran from an Ahmadi mosque in the country.

1974: Under the government of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, the Second Amendment was made to the 1973 Constitution of Pakistan. It stated: “A person who does not believe in the absolute and unqualified finality of the Prophethood of Muhammad (Peace be upon him), the last of the Prophets or claims to be a Prophet, in any sense of the word or of any description whatsoever, after Muhammad (peace be upon him), or recognises such a claimant as a Prophet or religious reformer, is not a Muslim for the purposes of the Constitution or law.”

That sealed the fate of the Ahmadis in Pakistan. The ostracisation of a community of almost four million Pakistanis (as per a 2016 report) who referred to themselves as Ahmadi Muslims, and were slurred as Qadiani or Mirzai, escalated. The snowballing effect of the Second Amendment took in its wake lives of countless Ahmadis: persecution, isolation, ban on prayer, exile, death. The list is long, and a black stain on the social and religious fabric of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, a country that prides itself on its Islamic moorings while existing in direct repudiation to some of Islam’s most important injunctions.

  1. Why Ahmadi Muslims are doomed in Pakistan?
    Rafiq—you ( ahmadiyyah) should convey God’s word to the extremist wahhabi clerics in Pakistan as follow:

    Surely, those who have made divisions in their religion and turned into factions, you have nothing to do with them. Their case rests with Allah alone; then He will tell them what they have been doing. Q. 6:(159)

    Verely your Lord knows best who has strayed from his way, and He is well aware of those who are on the right path. Q. 68:(7)

    I believe that the wahhabi clerics did not read God’s word above, please tell them and the authority who deal with this case.

    Let God judge people faith, no one has the right to judge other faith or religion. Right? Raffiq and Riffat?

    Do protest peacefully and Speak up loudly and tiredlessly until your voice be heard.
    Progressive Muslim will help you to protect the right of Ahmadiyyah to practice their belief.

    Ahmadiyyah leaders have to make real action, protest at goverment office etc—

    Allah will not Change the Condition if You do not Change it by Yourself. Q.13;11 —what you reap is what you sow.
    If no action—no thing will happen.

    Even million Ahmadiyyah pray to God for HELP 5 times a day, God will not listen your Duo ( prayer) .
    That is my advice. Think it


  2. Somi- like I said we follow the command of the Khalifa of Islam who gets his direction and directives from God. We accepted the promised Messiah who was to start the Jihad of Pen and end the Jihad of sword. The era of violence has now ended and now comes the age where we follow the ill of God “Love for all, Hatred for None” until God wants us to. When he has a different commandment for us to follow, he will communicate it to us through our Khalifatul Masih.
