    Until and unless state sponsored Ahmadiyya Apartheid is stopped innocent people will lay their lives in the name of religion. National Action Plan has not saved anyone nor it will do any good unless Ahmadiyya Apartheid is tackled headon.Recommend

    They always kill people who are positively vontributing to the community. Such as doctors, philantropists, shopkeepers etc. They want to remove Ahmadis from the public sphere and dehumanize them further.Recommend

    When the State encourages promoting hatred and even the likes of Imran Khan contribute towards this hate crime and therefore responsible directly or indirectly for such murders. why should we expect the uneducated mullah mafia led masses to think any different? In Pakistan everyone is responsible for this murder!!! May Allah guide this misguided nation.Recommend
