RAWALPINDI: Around 700 locals were gathered outside an Ahmadi worship centre in Satellite Town, Rawalpindi on Friday, demanding the removal of barricades and CCTV cameras installed outside it.
Leading the locals, businessman Sharjeel Mir said that the centre’s administration had assured them a few weeks ago that their demands would be fulfilled however nothing was done.
A representative of the Ahmadi centre told The Express Tribune that those gathered outside the worship place had forcefully removed the security cameras, while police present in the area failed to take any action against the attackers.
As reported earlier a ‘banned’ Jihadi organisation along with local traders had held a rally near the worship place against the “unconstitutional” activities of the marginalised community.
The Express Tribune had spoken to a number of Ahmadis, who had emphasised that the community had committed no unlawful activities and had pleaded that the hate campaign be stopped so they could feel safe in the area.
