In Pakistan’s Punjab province, Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) Vice President of Punjab Malik Ilyas Awan resurfaced the issue of persecution of the Ahmadiyya community. It should be confined to Chenab Nagar. Awan wrote that he wrote an application to the Deputy Chief of Hushab on July 30, saying that the Qadiani/Ahmadiyya policing was a mockery of the Pakistani constitution and had to be stopped.
“Qadianis, who belong to the Islamic State of Pakistan, have been asked not to pray freely. We cannot provide services outside our region,” he wrote. Pakistan is more averse to the Ahmadis and their interpretation of Islam than most other countries where the community exists. There are about 4 million Ahmadis in Pakistan, but since 1974 Ahmadis have been barred from calling themselves Muslims, which they consider “infidels” under the Pakistani constitution.
As a result, Ahmadis are not even allowed to refer to their places of worship as “mosques” and are barred from basic religious practices related to Islam. Awan went on to explain in his letter to Kushab, D.C., that Pakistan is an Islamic state, with Namaz prayers and sermons held every Friday at Tariq in his Wilk home in the new satellite city of Joharabad. and is in total violation of Pakistan’s Constitution. Islamic State.
He also said the presence of the Ahmadi community in the area has a negative impact on the environment for children. “They (Ahmadis) are required to immediately lift their security measures and conduct an investigation. Those who do not believe in prophetic finality must be expelled from the district,” Awan wrote. Meanwhile, Pakistan’s Human Rights Commission (HRCP) on Monday condemned PML-Q Punjab vice president Malik Ilyas Awan’s attempt to evict local Ahmadis from Kushab and deprive them of their security condemned.
There were also concerns about the incitement to violence contained in the PML-Q leader’s allegations. The Ahmadi community faces persecution in Pakistan in the form of hate crimes and mob violence, with public events such as their schools, mosques and weddings being common targets. JustEarth News reports that these incidents are further fueled by a systemic indifference that prevents any action being taken against the attackers.
“The ghettoization of this long-plagued community must stop. No authority has the right to dictate where citizens choose to live,” the HRCP said. The HRCP also stressed that no authority has the right to dictate where citizens choose to live. “The state has a constitutional responsibility to protect the right of Ahmadis to live, live where they want and profess their faith in safety,” the HRCP added.
