I am well aware that Ahmadi Muslims do believe in Prophet Muhammad ( P B U H) as the last Prophet. No one has the right to call anyone a non Muslim. Some things really need to be get cleared. Actions must be taken against such acts against Ahmadi Muslim brothers, specially in Pakistan.

Mr. Yasser Latif Hamdani, thanks for stating the truth and facts.
Honestly, I don't see any hope.

first of all i m really grateful to you and thankful to you as you raised your voice against injustice and inhumanity
it really is a great step you have took
these mullas that think they are now the masters of islam dont even know the basic that the Holy Prophet P.B.U.H never stopped any one from saying kalima
even on one occasion he s.a.w said had you torn his heart to whether he's saying it with heart or not???
and who the hell are these mullas who are stopping us the thing that prophet Muhammad s.a.w has never did to anyone
i ask everyone... do we found any example of this in his holiness's life???

It is so ironic to look back at history when Ahmedis were the leading proponents of the two-nation theory that declared that they could not live with Hindus and which was based on hatred against Hindus. They also joined actively in the massacre that took place during the partition. Now see what has happened! Hatred only helps breed hatred. Is the law of Karma at work here? Having said that I do feel very sorry for the suffering of the Ahmedis.

Yes, a time is that the decisions may take their places. These articles cannot work a lot on serpents' hearts.

It is time that the west should check the Majority Sunni Muslims of Pakistan in granting citizenship. Instead, the minority, Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, Ahamadiyas, and Hazara [Shias] should be given the citizenship, if they can afford to do so. The true victims of religious persecution in Pakistan will always be grateful to these western nations for the charity. Never, any Indian Hindu, Sikh is linked to any terror attack directed against the US or the UK. They are grateful to the land of the host.
History says that Ahamadis were the voters as Muslims in separate electorate. They voted absolutely for the Muslim League in the election to the Constituent Assembly in the run-up to freedom. Had they ever known that the future state of Pakistan would treat them discriminately, they might have voted for the Congress. Then the existing periphery of Pakistan might have changed too. Perhaps, Moulana Abul Kalam Azad, a far-sighted politician is all the more relevant today. Ahamadis must now regret their forefathers' folly.

Ahmadis are facing same situation as early Muslim faced and it was predicted by Rasool Allah that you will recognize Akhreen as treatment of awwaleen are treated. as word Akhreen is mentioned in Sura Juma. Early Muslims were killed when they recited Kalima, call Adhan or any Islamic deed they performed by Kuffar same opposition is faced by Ahmadis by the 72 of sects of Muslims who declared Ahmadis Kaffirs . They kill Ahmadis for reciting Kalima and call Adhan. Prophet said My ummah will divide in 73 sects and 72 sects will be hell bound except one sect. In 1974 exactly 72 sects first time in Islamic history got together on one table though blood thirsty enemy to each other and declare 73rd sect of Islam out of the pale of Islam. So hadith is fulfilled. Islam is now considered the most notorious religion around the world and because of these Mullahs life of Muslims is very difficult.

Great article highlighting the plight of a community whose all stakes were in Pakistan. Our slogan is not going to change which is love for all hatred for none. Visit www.alislam.org for full pictures.

A bold piece Mr.Hamdani. Very few are left in Pakistan who will agree with you, sad! I hope and pray Pakistan survives, Amen! We as nation are sick and retarded and no one is responsible to put us in stone age except us. After 65 years we have have ceased to exist even as a society.

From a macro perspective, Ahmadis are reaping what they sowed by supporting formation of Pakistan which in turn is based on intolerance towards non-muslims. Next in line to be cleaned are Shias. After all Pakistan is considered land of the pure!

The so-called defenders and faithful of Islam are doing all series of persecutions against Ahmadi Muslims as a result of FATWA issued at 1974 by self styled carefully selected Ulemas, without compassion for fellow humanbeings. Some of the programme of actions against Ahmadies are the following. The Conference of Ulemas recommend the following measures:
1. All the Muslim organization in the world must keep a vigilant eye on all the activities of Qadianisim their respective countries; to confine them all strictly to their schools, institutions and orphanages only. Moreover the Muslims of the world should be shown the true picture of Qadianism and be briefed of their various tactics so that the Muslims of the world be saved from their designs.
2. They must be declared non Muslims and ousted from the fold of Islam. And be barred to enter the Holy lands.
3. There must be no dealings with the Qadianis. They must be boycotted socially , economically and culturally Nor they be married with or be allowed to be buried in the Muslims graveyards. And they be treated like other non Muslims.
4. All the Muslim countries must impose restrictions on the activities of the claimant of Prophethood Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Qadiani’s followers; must declare them a non Muslim minority must not etrust them with any post of responsibility in any Muslim country.
5. The alterations effected by them in the Holy Quran must be made public and the people be briefed of them and all these be prohibited for further publication.
6. All such groups as are deviators from islam must be treated at par with the Qadianis.
Well, I wonder what the Holy Prophet of Islam (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) will say at the day of judgement concerning this statements, let alone Ever Merciful Allah will say. May Allah, out of His Grace forgive them all and open their eyes. LOVE FOR ALL HATRED FOR ALL.

Well written Mr. Yasir Latif. Ahmadies not only contributed for the Foundations of Pakistan but also contributed in the Formation and Running of Pakistan. First Foreign Minister of Pakistan, The President of International Court at Hague and The President of U N General Assembly was also an Ahmady. The Success of 1965 War was also because by an Ahmady General. The Moulvi's who were against Pakistan before 1947 are now claiming to be the patriots. I think we should realize who are real traitors and who are bringing bad names to Pakistan.

Unfortunately Pakistani governments have always used anti Ahmadia stance to stay in power and to divert attention from their own failures, No matter what they do to the Ahmedies, religious intolerance has come to stay as the hallmark of Pakistan as a state and as a

Dear Yassir latif Sahib,
thanks for this brave piece. Every Pakistani who love this motherland , must raised this type of questions.

Excellent, all-encompassing piece on a modern-day travesty that the world chooses to keep its eyes averted from. Wake up world and take note of the perilous truth this writer is expounding here!

Arrogance of communal fanatics shall be responsible for disturbing peace all over the world. Fanatics irrespective of religion, should be condemned. I feel very sad to know all what is being done to Ahmadias. If sunnies don't accept them as Muslims; fine, but don't harass or kill them. Pakistan is undoubtedly a Sunni Muslim State; which won't allow any other community to flourish or survive; does it mean that rest of the communities or minorities will have to leave the country? No; Pakistan rulers may have to think of the peaceful co- existence of all communities.

Although the actions against this community are quite offensive, the act of PPP cannot be declared wrong in any way. Either they are declared Muslims or rest of population. Ask any Ahemdi, the one who does not believe on their prophet, they will call him Kafir.... Hence, ZA Bhutto did a good job by declaring them non-Muslims. But their prosecution and killings are not right way. They should be allowed to do whatever in their worship places and should have all the rights what non-Muslims have in this country.

what a sad state of affairs in pakistan. what did Ahmadis do to deserve this contempt. why they continue to live where they are not wanted. half of syrians kill the other half. world leaders are eating. sleeping, drinking dancing attending conferences and issuing statements. discuss with Indian PM. request him to accept Ahmadis. we will welcome them with open minds . we have space in our mind and heart
