    Oh thank God they were killed by someone from their own community. Otherwise the liberal fascists would have bombarded this article with their complaints

    @SalSal:
    Is that what you have learned from the religion, terming those who fight for the rights of others as “liberal fascists”.
    Hey, at least those liberal fascists don’t burn tires, block traffic and destroy peoples property or business.

    It needs more details. It could happen in any community, occasionally in some and frequently in others.

    This is a pathetic way to report. How come ET can be so irresponsible. Why was there a need to emphasize their religious beliefs?

    @SalSal, I agree buddy. Really, this article is meant to gain the attention of all these secular fascists who waste no chance of speaking ill about the religious community.

    if they were not killed by their own community people, then the comments count must exceed one or two hundreds at least.

    Actually it was a personal matter between the three. I believe it happened outside the premises of Ahmadiyya Mosque. Also, so what it happened between Ahmadis? It’s one incident in their 125 years of history… big deal!

    @SalSal:

    Spot on. ET is a liberal rag and they’re sponsoring Ahmadi awareness week it seems….even a story that is a non-story gets coverage because it can get spun into the pro-Ahmadi hysteria the liberal are bandwagon-ing behind these days. Plz….give it a rest…the only people who care are the ones who’re already convinced and those who aren’t won’t be moved one inch regardless of you spend the next 1000 articles painting this community in every positive way imaginable….we simply don’t care. ET really tries too hard to Kemalize everything they touch and then they create new things to go even further. Quite revolting actually and I’m sure every person who isn’t a liberal extremist is well aware of the need for more balanced english language media. Right now we’ve got liberal, more liberal and even more liberal….nothing left of extreme far left in the english media as far as I can see. Recommend

    He/they didn’t kill any non-Ahmadi bystandars or any non-Ahmadi sects members as often happens to them. Very sad indeed, regardless of their association.
