Ahmadis under attack (IX)


Letter May 29, 2010

GILGIT: We need to pass stringent laws to weed out sectarianism from the country. Unless we do we will see what happened in Lahore happen again and again. The government needs to monitor what is said in mosques and what is taught in the madressahs to make sure that the maulvis do not spread hate or disseminate such literature.

I would also say that the Punjab government must be held responsible because as it now turns out the Ahmadi community had been warned in the past and asked for adequate protection – and quite clearly this was not given to them.

My condolences to the families of all those who lost their lives.

Rational | 10 years ago | Reply Anyone familiar with the history of Pakistan movement would know that Ahmadis were amongst the stringest supporters of Pakistan movement while the likes of Jamaat-e-Islami, Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind and Majlis-e-Ahrar were deadly against the creation of Pakistan. Looking at Pakistan today, it appears as if these so-called religious parties had secured this piece of land to impose their interpretation of Shari'a law. I would like to ask one question to them: if Pakistan was secured for imposing Shari'a law, why did they object to the creation of Pakistan? I would urge these so-called religious fanatics to please leave Pakistan as this is not the country they own. Lay off, please.
