A strong call by the Ahmadi community and its supporters for justice in the case of a well known Ahmadi schoolteacher alleged death by torture while in police custody was a top Twitter trend in Pakistan today.

Master Abdul Qudoos Ahmad, 43, was detained by the police in the first week of February and was brutally tortured during interrogations, causing severe internal injuries, Ahmad’s family alleged.

The trend #JusticeforQudoos was established by local Twitter users calling for accountability and justice in the case.

    Those responsible must be held accountable for this murder. No half measures and empty promises by the government please. There must be justice or these types of incidents will continue

    It’s a pity that such brutal killing of a gentleman and a school teacher is not being highlighted in the print and electronic media only due to the fact that he belongs to Ahmadiyya Community. I know him personally and has learned a lot from him. He was such a kind and loving person that his absence will be felt for years.

    I cannot describe how painful it was to learn about his tragic death in police custody and the story of the torture he experienced during that time. For more than one month, he kept in a condition which cannot be called human. He was the father of 4 kids and the only son of his mother. My condolences to his family and I have no more words to say. RIP My brother Abdul Qaddoos. You are a true martyre and our generations to come will draw inspiration from you.

    irrespective of being Ahmadi or otherwise, the man was a human……if the only reason for his death was his religious beliefs, then he definitely is better off/much stronger than the so-called believers of Islam who did this to him

    What’s with this double standard by the media? Hundreds of prisoners are tortured to death by the police not the first case here. Why so much fuss ? Just coz he’s Ahmadi? What about other Muslim prisoners who get tortured to death? The media never highlighted those?

    I invite all NGOs, human rights activists, News channels and everybody who knows the sad murder of Abdul Qudoos to keep following how Govt and/or the so-called ‘independent’ supreme court investigate this incident. As history tells, human right violations reported against Ahmadis are given a deaf ear by Govt, courts and even media.

    I appeal the world to do the moral duty of pushing Pakistan Govt to do a fair investigation and stop police doing such unlawful acts.

    It is indeed a sad day for Pakistan. Another innocent victim is laid to rest because of brutal police torture primarily because of his faith. The land of the pure where every individual had the right to practice their religion in the eyes of the founder Quaid-e-Azam. It is high time that the masses wake up and take a stand against these atrocities and bring about a wave of change in these trying times InshAllah!

    Ahmadis were in the forefront of independence movement of Pakistan and gave their time and blood for the well being and independence of this great country. One cannot erase the names of Sir Zafarullah Khan, Dr. Abdul Salam, General Akhtar Malik, General Iftikhar Janjua, Sq. Leader Munir Ahmad, Dr. M. M Ahmad who were the greatest names of the country in their respective field.

    One cannot deny this fact that all mainstream Mullahs were against the creation of Pakistan including Majlis Ahrar and Jamat Islami and called Pakistan as “NAPAKISTAN” and Quide Azam as “KAFIRE AZAM”. What a pity that these clerics now treated as the respectable citizens of Pakistan and hold the strings of our helpless rulers and Ahmadis are being killed and treated as second class citizens of Pakiatan. This is complete INJUSTICE.

    We PEACEFULLY demand a judicial inquiry into the illegal detention and torture of ABDUL QUDOOS and prosecution of all the officials of the Chenab Nagar police station and DPO on the charges of torture and the murder of an innocent teacher. We also urge to unearth the torture cells from the police station and suspend all the police officers of the district until the completion of the judicial inquiry.

Soon these forces will realise that there is revenge time and that will be directly be made by the God of Jamat Ahmadiyya.
