In police custody: Ahmadi school teacher allegedly tortured to death

FAISALABAD / LAHORE: Master Abdul Qudoos, a well known Ahmadi school teacher was allegedly tortured to death while in police custody in the Rabwah city of Punjab on Friday.

The Chenab Nagar Police has registered a case against two accused police officials.

Master Abdul Qudoos Ahmad, 43, was taken into custody by the police in the first week of February for questioning in the murder case of Muhammad Yousuf, a stamp-paper seller from Nusrat Abad.

He was allegedly tortured ruthlessly during the interrogation, causing severe internal injuries.

“When his body could not take further torture, his relatives were blackmailed and he was released. He was admitted to a local hospital where doctors tried to save his life, but Qudoos died due to several injuries and excessive loss of blood,” Abdul Qudoos’s brother-in-law Imtiaz Ahmed said.

SHO Khadim Hussain of the Chenab Nagar Police Station told The Express Tribune that on the complaint of Imtiaz Ahmad, a case had been registered against the two police sub inspectors, Sujhat Ali and Manazar Ali under sections 302, 148, 34 of the Pakistan Penal Code.

He, however, maintains that the accused was picked up on March 24 and was released two days later as the police was convinced of his innocence. Hussain says a fatal disease could be the possible cause of death.

Hussain said the dead body was sent for postmortem examination, adding that if the autopsy proved the cause of death to be torture, action against the accused will be taken accordingly.

The spokesperson of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Pakistan, Saleemud Din condemned the incident, terming it ‘callous and inhuman’.

“The way Master Abdul Qudoos was tortured and brutalised is the lowest form of humanity. Police should investigate the murder case and whoever is involved should be brought to justice. The police have no right to pick up any person and subject them to extra-judicial torture,” Din said.

Saleemud Din alleged that the real reason for the teacher’s arrest was to taint the reputation of the local Ahmadiyya administration of Rabwah. “Master Abdul Qudoos was the President of Jamaat-e-Ahmediyya’s local chapter and he was arrested to defame the administration.”

Saleemud Din demanded the constitution of a high-powered commission to investigate the case. He also urged the government, as well as human rights organisations to take notice of the incident.

“The culprits behind the murder should be brought to justice so people can have faith in the police department,” Din said.

    I’d call it an “outrage”, but my repetitive use of this term has caused it to lose its worth. At some point, callously enough, one starts to view these unspeakable atrocities as natural deaths.

It is noteworthy that the same Punjab police was disgraced during attack on Sri Lankan team and many other such occasions which shows that they are not professionals and are not honest to their jobs. It is a fact that culprists are getting space in such law enforcing agencies not only defaming Police but also defaming Pakistan. Higher authorities should take quick and stern action in this matter. And if found guilty, the responsibles of the murder of Master Abdul Qudoos should be dealt with an Iron hand.

    This is barbaric and heinous crime.

Police uses torture so they do not have to work hard in collecting evidence. Rather it is easier to torture so the tortured party can accept to whatever police wants.

    Secondly, Why Ahmadis are not given proper chance in Pakistan? Why are they constitutionally allowed to be victimized? Why the each subsequent government which includes (military and so called democratic governments) loves to partake in criminal activities?

    Why the judiciary in this country only listens to stuff where they can score points to gain popularity and blackmail those on whom they feel are the weakest link?

    So the State-sponsored hate campaign take this new turn. State machinery has always been used in the most ugly manner, but this new dimension is a new chapter altogether. Had he been a non-Ahmadi would he be subject to such torture and keeping in mind the pressure of mullah on this society … Well Done you black sheeps of this black society. Alas only if you could figure out what this is going to return for your coming generations…

    So so so sad. Just for a second leaving his believes aside, He was a human, a husband, a father of four, and most importantly a Teacher… This shows how do we respect the nation builders. Just read it with Waheeda Shah case. In that story too the victim is a teacher. But this one is crossing all the limits of brutality by the men in uniform. But the worst part of the story is that a teacher was Slapped!!! and there was a sou moto action by Honourable Chief Justice of Pakistan. Another Teacher is brutally killed and there is ‘pin drop silence’ in the Chambers of Justice… The difference between two teachers is… the later was AHMADI…
    Alas!!! For a country where an Idol worshipper can get Justice, but not an Ahmadi…

    where the heck is every body? why doesn’t any body take any action against the alleged killers why???????
    this needs to be seriously think over , why is every body silent???
    after hearing all this, I am forced to say that what a nation will do where the law ment to protect but it is not infact it is killing people, I can only say shame on such nation and law makers.

    That is a brutal act from police without having any evidence, torturing an innocent man. ahhhh.. As human being we cannot expect this piece of action from human but still this was done by the so called symbols of justice; Police. Everybody should remember that there is ALLAH watching and who so ever do injustice or do such act of brutality, will be put to the bigger punishment by him. Never forget this. Justice will be done by HIM.
    This action disgraces every human being, we cannot expect to do this to our enemies even but still it was done. Full DISGRACE for POLICE. Proper action should be taken against those responsible behind this as Justice should prevail though I doubt in Pakistan. The So Called Symbol of Justice these days; Chief justice of Supreme Court; where is he on this matter. He never takes notice on this instead he is looking behind all the political symbols. These injustice will prevail if there is no justice mechanism. Please wake up. If they will not, ALLAH will. We should be afraid then if He has to intervene then it should be terrifying for all of us as when ALLAH intervenes then there is no way out for all of us.

Ahamdis are becoming victim everyday in Pakistan and the public tend to be totally distanced from these inhuman incidences. How can such a community have right to live in this world. If we become insensitive to such barbarous acts which are becoming routines in Pakistan, we will one day see the whole community being perished.

    Though this is the problem throughout Pakistan, especially with Punjab Police that extrajudicial killings are increasing in number day by day and strengthening the hands of criminals. It is noteworthy that the same Punjab police was disgraced during attack on Sri Lankan team and many other such occasions which shows that they are not professionals and are not honest to their jobs. It is a fact that culprists are getting space in such law enforcing agencies not only defaming Police but also defaming Pakistan. Higher authorities should take quick and stern action in this matter. And if found guilty, the responsibles of the murder of Master Abdul Qudoos should be dealt with an Iron hand.

Morality of Pujab police is a big question mark here. We don’t have to go very far to see an insane policeman killing Governor Punjab Salman Taseer.

And police kept him under arrest till 26 of March for no reason at all. And yet another incident tool place of beating someone brutally, in the name of inspection that he is no more with us now. Can someone speak why he was kept prison for more than a month and how our police can beat and torture someone , till they are no more in the position to speak? Why we see news and action only when a government official or elite class of group face such issues? Why NOT when it happens with an ahmadi?
