Pakistan’s minister of state for parliamentary affairs has called for the beheading of people who commit blasphemy.

“Beheading is the only punishment for those who mock Prophet Muhammad,” Ali Muhammad Khan tweeted in the Urdu language.

Khan made the controversial comments in response to conflicting reports that Ahmadis had been given representation on a newly established National Minorities Council. Ahmadis do not believe that Muhammad was the last prophet.

Rabwah Times, an independent digital media publication covering minorities, first reported that Prime Minister Imran Khan had given his consent to include Ahmadis in the council.

The report, which was also aired by local TV channels, sparked hateful media campaigns targeting the minority Ahmadi community.

  1. Does this minister not read the Qur’an with meaning that he’s making these fast and loose comments in public to incite the people?

    These politicians are totally without any principals or brains – reflecting on a populace which is their mirror image!!!!

    BRAINLESS!!
