    Here we go again, all this is the consequence of Bhutto and Zia who started discriminatory laws in Pakistan that led to sectarianism and intolerance.

    Killing innocents this way has once again proved that this country is full of cockroaches.Recommend

    Time has come that people stand up against mullahs and dont let them preach hatred in mosques. Pakistan needs to return to Jinnah pakistan and seperate religion and politics and follow the ideal of August 11 speech of Quaid Azam which states every citizen of this country is equal. Jammat Islami and other religious parties opposed creation of pakistan, these parties should be banned. These parties are terrorist and they are behind taliban who are killings innocent people. Mudoodi literature and books shuold be banned as done in bangladesh as they promote intolerance and extremism and are unislamic.Recommend

    RAW? Seriously? because the Tehreek-e-Talebans and Al Qaeda and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and so on are such pious Muslims?
    I do hope Omar Malik’s comment was sarcasm Recommend

    Muslim clerics should clarify the definition of JIHAD
    then preach it for the purpose of conveying message
    to the innocent and the people have no knowledge
    about the JIHAD.

    It would a effort,
    through which we can
    to some extent,stop the suicide attacks.Recommend

    The attack has been foiled by Ahmadi guards but sadly one passerby was killed when the suicide bomber blew himself up.

    The other killed is the suicide bomber himself. The guards opened fire on the suicide bomber who could not reach the place.

    Large human toll has been avoided.Recommend

    @ Talha,

    The attack was foiled by ahmadi guard, and no passerby was killed, the only person dead other than suicide bomber was another ahmadi volunteer, who was performing security duty on the main gate. His Namaz-e-Janaza is being offered today at Ahmadiyya Headquaters in Rabwah, PunjabRecommend

    Ahmadi masjid attacks are the direct result of intolerance preached for decades by clerics who apposed Pakistan and now refuse to condemn suicide bombing.Recommend

    The time has come when the whole nation must stand firm against these hate provoking Mullah of Pakistan. It was a shameful and coward act.Ahmadiyya Jammaat is a target of such atrocities since many decades due to the hate campaign against them by the orthodox religious extremist mullahs. We must condemn all those religious parties who are directly and indirectly supporting these Talibaan and their coward act of terrorism. It is very shameful for our urdu print and electronic media who always project these mullahs in their news papers and channels to launch hate campaigns against the vulnerable and devrived communities like Ahmadiyya Jammaat.Recommend

    Did this transgessors forget what was the punishment of the Pharaos . Allah has the power to punish this people on the same way if they don,t stop with their attacks on the servants of God.
    may Allah protect Jamaat Ahmadiyya .
