LAHORE: Lauding the federal cabinet for not including Ahmadis in the Minorities Commission, the Punjab Assembly demanded through a resolution on Tuesday that the minority should be included into the body only after their top leader submits in writing that the community accepts the Constitution of Pakistan and their status as non-Muslims.

Tabled by Mines and Minerals Minister Hafiz Ammar Yasir, the resolution adopted unanimously said: “….This august House appreciates the federal cabinet for not including Qadianis in the Minorities Commission because neither the Qadianis recognise the Constitution of Pakistan nor they proclaim themselves as non-Muslims.

“This House reiterates [its concern] that the issue of finality of Prophethood is raised every other day. Sometimes Hajj form is amended and at others the word of Khatamu al-Nabiyyan (SAW) is omitted from books. But no action was ever taken against these conspiracies. Pakistan is an Islamic country but we have to beg for the protection of sanctity of Namoos-i-Risalat. It’s a matter of shame for all of us.

“This House demands from the federal government to put an end to this practice and expose and strictly penalize the elements involved in the conspiracy.

“Moreover, Hindus, Sikhs and Christians are represented at the Minorities Commission and we have never objected to any of them because they don’t declare themselves as Muslims. We raise a voice for the rights of the minorities as enshrined in the Constitution.
“This House demands that if the chief of Qadianis submits in writing declaring that they accept the Constitution of Pakistan and accept their status as non-Muslims then we will have no objection to their inclusion into the Commission.

“The issue of Khatm-e-Nabuwwat is a red line for us. Nothing is dearer to us than protection of Khatm-e-Nabuwwat, protection of Namoos-i-Risalat (SAW), protection of Namoos-i-Ashab-e-Rasool, protection of Namoos-i-Ahle Baet, and protection of Namoos-i-Ummahat al-Momineen (Rizwanullah Ajmaeen). We’re ready to sacrifice everything for it and none must have any qualms about it,” concludes the resolution.

Speaking to the participants, Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi said they all are the protectors of the honour of Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) and it is an integral part of the faith of every Muslim.

  1. I wrote this to the newspaper. Let’s see if they will publish it:

    Of course you know that you will have to kill all Ahmadi-Muslims in Pakistan before any one of them will sign a letter stating that they accept to be non-Muslim. Internationally you are making yourself fools, because all over the world, except in Pakistan, people belief in religious freedom. Another embarrassing and sad day for Pakistan. Sadly, you are not following the Qur’an either, where it is stated ‘there is no compulsion in religion’. It is up to Allah to decide who is following the right path. The Provincial Assembly better solve the ‘earthly’ problems of the community, which I think you still have a lot.

  2. “This House demands that if the chief of Qadianis submits in writing declaring that they accept the Constitution of Pakistan and accept their status as non-Muslims then we will have no objection to their inclusion into the Commission.
    Its looks extremely funny resolution of Assembly. Neither Ahmadiyya Community tabled this move nor any Ahmadi is interested in such motion.  All over the world Ahmadis are considered as Muslims. In Germany rather this is only group which is recognised as Muslims at state level.
    Problem with Pakistani Politicians is to use Ahmadiyya card to divert the attention of masses from important societal issues. Sincere advise to Pakistan Political elite is to mind their own business and pay attention to resolve local issues. Ahmadies do not need any of  so called sympathies.  Allah Himself is sufficient for the community and by the grace of Almighty it is flourishing and progressing day and night round the globe. Ahmadies are in fact real and actual torch bears of true Islam and no one can snatch this right from them. Long live Ahmadiyya Islam.

  3. It seems that Pakistani politicians in cahoots with their questionable mullahs have discovered the ‘art’ of mind-reading!

    None of them seem to be reading the Qur’an with translation otherwise they would have come across the many verses when Allah is telling the Prophet (saw) and the Muslims that their job is just to pass on the message. It is Allah’s job to know which of the recipients of this message really follow and who does not.

    They also seem to be an extremely blood-thirsty lot because nowhere in the entire Qur’an is there ANY punishment for apostasy leave alone death. Yet, they interpret everything to their own whims. Shame on them!!!
